EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

How to run the Defence zone activity

Talking with experienced grassroots coach Chris Sweetapple, we look at a recent session he’s run using a Rugby Coach Weekly activity. This episode is about “defence zone” which was the game activity as part of the practice plan, Standing in the tackle.

We also discuss, and not necessarily agree (!) on the following questions: “Who are we doing this for?” and “How do development and results coaches get along?”

The attackers run around with the ball before one aims to run through the defence (who cannot leave the defence zone). No passing is allowed in the defence zone. One point for 5m covered and the ball secured or two points for a try.

This session comes from Standing in the Tackle
