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.
Focus on clean pickup of ball
Keep eye on defender
Dictate terms (Left/Right) to create space for support players
Timing of the pass.
- Not too early, not effective space creation/doubt with defender
- Not too late, Risk of being tackled with the ball
