Skills for continuity

Skills for continuity are split into three main areas

  • Skills for the ball carrier,
  • Skills for the ruck,
  • Skills for the maul

Skills can thought of as a continuum from simple to complex. The most simple skills work with no interference from the opposition. The most complex need the player to consider many factors, such as their relative position to the opposition and how their teammates have moving into position themselves.

Skills then feed into team tactics and strategies, such as “play to space”, or “create weaknesses”.

In this lesson, each topic will look at the skills for each of the three skills for continuity.
