Every coach will find the “perfect” moves for their team – whatever their level – in 50 Great Backs Moves.

Each move is set out in a user-friendly full-page A4 page format and takes up the entire page, split into manageable sections.

There are three clear diagrams with each move, showing the movements of the ball and players, positions, dummy passes and runs, before and during the play.

In simple language, 50 Great Backs Moves explains who does what, and highlights common mistakes that are made.

The commentary tells you when it is good to use a move, and things for the players to think about at training and during a game.

You can print or photocopy as many copies of each move as you like and give them to your players on the training ground.

Players can study the nuts and bolts on paper, increasing their understanding before putting the theory into practice.

The Move Finder tool is designed to help you decide which moves will suit your team, the conditions, or work well against an opposing team with particular strengths and weaknesses. There’s also a Player Sheet Template for your players to complete with your guidance, to remind them throughout the season of their roles and responsibilities in team moves.

There’s no need to save the copies – keep the manual on your PC desktop and just print off more next time you practice the move (restricted to use within a single organisation).

You can print off a different move for each training session.

Whether you have been coaching a professional side for years or a group of beginners for a term, just a little extra effort in planning your backs moves can reap dividends. 50 Great Backs Moves tells you where to apply that effort.

The 64 page manual includes a full explanation of all the terms used to explain the moves, including “crash ball”, “dummy switch”, “flat ball”, and “running a triangle”.

With a full explanation of all the terms, the moves are divided into easy, medium and hard to for easy selection – all you as the coach need to do is use the ones that best suit your players’ strengths.

50 Great Backs Moves doesn’t just show you the moves but explains how to coach them and use them.

    I'm almost frightened to give 50 Great Backs Moves a recommendation because it is superb and a great aid for any coach, but if other coaches use it they'll have all the advantages this book gives you at their disposal.

    A great book, but lets keep it to ourselves!!!

    "50 Great Backs Moves has been used extensively in our training sessions at Wensleydale Rugby Club.

    The results have been brilliant especially in the junior section where they have been used on weekly coaching sessions, easy to use and understand and brilliant to follow. Well worth a try."

    "I was coaching 2nd grade for two years, made semi final both years but didn't make the grand final.

    I decided I needed more help in finding ways to score more tries, then came 50 Great Backs Moves.

    It was easy to implement because of it's simplicity. The layout of the manual is outstanding, it makes so much sense.

    We finished the year with best for and against thanks to these great moves and WON THE GRAND FINAL.

    Thanks Dan."

    I think it's well-organized, searchable, and really details what each player needs to do to either create space or exploit space. I love it.

    50 Great Backs Moves provides some great fundamental rugby in a very straight forward fashion.

    It provides insight into the game both at a college and senior men's level.

    The first time players embrace the format and pick up the concepts quickly through this guide.

    I found the book and the technical rugby information very informative and have used many of the suggestions in my training sessions.

    The 50 Great Backs Moves is well documented and easy to use and the range of moves and difficulty is very useful in progressing players technical ability.

    Keep the info coming.

    Wanted to thank you for your 50 Great Back Moves.

    It is simple enough to employ at a very young level and sophisticated enough for us to aspire to. Simple language and well illustrated.

    As a former back row player my experience of effective back play was limited.

    The structure of 50 Great Backs Moves has allowed me to steadily introduce more and more backs plays and has improved the quality of our back line 10 fold.

    Proof of this happened one Sunday when 4 of the 5 tries we scored in a county semi-final match were either moves or variations from 50GBM.

    A must for any coach.

    As a long time amateur player and coach, we often have to get our information handed down from the "old rugby sage" to the next generation....AND MOST TIMES IT IS AT THE BAR AFTER THE GAME!

    With special reports like Dan Cottrell's 50 Great Backs Moves, I have been able to teach rugby at a higher level which allows my athletes to make decisions and follow through on the field and now really play the sport of rugby.

    Coaching the Harrow School Under 15s, the moves have given our backs various options giving the team exciting back play.

    The moves are easy to follow and effective. I look forward to using it as the backbone of my teams attacking play.
