Rugby Drill Demonstration


Create two attack lines (channels)

Ball carrier enters first channel picking up ball from ground running towards the defender (with shield). Player 2 enters next channel and runs behind ball carrier in support. Before contact ball carrier passes the ball to the support player.

Keep eye on defender

Dictate terms (Left/Right) to create space for support players

- Not too early, not effective space creation/doubt with defender
