EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

Box shape attack

in Attack

Mix up forwards and backs in attacks from rucks by running a box formation. Have two players at the front and two at the back. The ball carrier has multiple options to pass to when he attacks the line. MORE

Back row running lines off the scrum

in Defence, Rugby drills

The back row needs to operate as a coordinated unit in defence, not three individuals. Use this session to develop their roles. From a scrum, each back row player has a different running line so they can cover initial attacks, a possible break and then defend around the ruck. MORE

Draw and pass to score

in Rugby drills

Create overlaps by coaching players to race “around the corner” just before the ball is delivered, giving the defence little time to react and get organised. The aim is to put the strike runner away. MORE

Tackle low, score high

in Rugby drills, Tackling

The low tackle is the best way to neutralise mismatches in size and power. It relies on a tackler closing down space to restrict the attacker’s speed and momentum – use this scoring game to get it right. MORE
