Rugby Drill Demonstration

Description

This drill guides the Attacker's (blue) path towards the Try Line. They must run around the slalom and past the defenders (red) to score a try.

Defenders cannot come off their line (in line with each of the cones) however they can move side to side on that line to fill the space.

Once a player is tagged BOTH DEFENDER AND ATTACKER FREEZE - This will encourage defenders to pick their man and get the tags.

Swap Attackers and Defenders and re-run.

 

 

Coaching points

Attackers:

Behind the ball carrier to offer passing opportunities
Support your team mates, calling for the ball if they're in space
Run at spaces not faces
Defenders:

Focus on tags
Teamworking with your partner on the each line / picking their targets

Other Points:

If attackers constantly win:

Reduce space available to Attackers or Increase number of defenders

If Defenders constantly win

Remove blue cones / Increase gaps for attackers or reduce defenders

Running outside slalom = turnover ball.
