Rugby Drill Demonstration


Blue Player is leader and yellow player is following

Blue players objective is to use good foot work to move forward and back within a 5m space to to either get into the air infront of the yellow player or have 1-2m distance from the yellow player when they jump

Yellow player must watch the blue player and move with them and try to get of the ground at the same time as blue either next to or infront of them.

Coaching points

  • Start in a dynamice position (on toes, bent hips and knees, hands up ready)
  • take small sharp steps keeping the heels off the ground
  • quickly bring feet together to generate a fast explosive jump (do not double bounce)
  • short dip before jump to maximise height and speed of launch


  1. add listers to each jumper
  2. add hooker throwing in
