Rugby Drill Demonstration


The attacker (in Blue) starts from one end with the defender (in red) at the other. The Defender presses forwards as the attacker makes his run. 

The attacker will then try and send the attacker in the wrong direction with a 'fake'.


In the next phase, it is up to the attacker if he is going to fake or is going to run the original path (as the defender will be expecting a 'fake')

Coaching points

Coach is to stand close to the mid point to ensure no collisions take place. 

Ball is to be carried in both hands at all times. There is to be no fending off with either the ball or attackers body.
