Wes, Rugby Coach

DESCRIPTION

Attacking Red team of 7 players sets up in a line behind 3 balls that are scattered.

Defending Blue team of 6 starts bunched behind a central cone with 1 facing the attacking team and the other 5 facing away.

On the whistle, Red Picks up one of the 3 balls and advances in order to score.
The one Blue defender who is facing forwards, will move up to make the tackle. The other 5 defenders will go on the coaches signal (as soon as contact is made) and will need to organize and get into a flat line quickly. Blue are not to commit anyone to the ruck other than the tackler (who may jackal).
Red will need to form up and will attack the blue line at will.

The attacking team only get 1 phase following the tackle to score.

If numbers are low, perhaps take a ball away, just ensure the drill is run with 1 more player on attack than defence.
