Rugby Drill Demonstration


Encouraging the players to use both shoulders to make a tackle. 

Encouraging the player with the ball to keep hold of the ball in contact. 

Coaching points

1. Set up cones of 2 colours 5m apart but zig zag colours down, like the picture. 

2. Get players to split and those behind blue cones have a ball.

3. The ball carrier then runs diagonally to the other blue cone and the tackler runs diagonally to orange cone making the tackle. 

4. Keep going along same tackler throughout and then once completed switch over ball carrier and go again.
