Rugby Drill Demonstration

Description

The goal of this game is to stop the Red ball carrier scoring in the try area.

In order to do this, you will need to use 1 of 3 different tackling techniques (front, side or rear).

You set up a large area with 3 different coloured cones on 3 of the 4 corners and a starting position for the attacker in one of them.

The coach will call a colour (1 of the 3 cones) and that is the mark for the ball carrier and the defender (whichever cone they were on) to go.
For example here; if red was called, the ball carrier would dart for the try zone and the defender on the red cone would chase them and attempt to make a try saving tackle from behind before the line.

If blue is called, the defender on that cone would be trying to intercept the attacker and make a side tackle.

If yellow is called, the defender on that cone will come forward and meet the ball carrier and attempt to make a positive tackle and drive them back as far as possible. If a positive tackle cannot be made (due to side step etc) stopping the ball carrier from reaching the try line is paramount.
