Rugby Drill Demonstration


Initially, practice 1 on 1 tackling front on and from the side with the pad carrier always having the pad facing the tackler. Once the tackle is made, the carrier lets go of the pad, so the tackler lands on it. This is a practice of correct tackling technique. 

Coaching points

Once the one on one practice is complete, have 1 tackler in a box with 4 pad carriers. The pad carriers need to get to the other side of the box without getting pad tackled. This is a practice of tackling technique at full speed.
