The other week I was running some 4v2s. Initially, the attack was always successful. I suppose that is what you would expect but they were not succeeding as I wanted. Sloppy passing and drifting angles meant that although they were scoring, it was not improving their skill levels. It was time to make the defenders work harder. MORE
See the Winner from our Rugby Coaching Competition!
Thanks to everyone who entered our Rugby Coaching Competition!
The winner of a coaching session was Chris Sweetapple who is an amateur coach Saracens Amateur RFC. Chris will win a coaching session with me, Dan Cottrell, as well as £100 Amazon voucher and a bundle of our rugby coaching manuals.
I simply loved this plan for a session.
It mixes quick messages with detail on how to coach and what to coach.
The session itself is very much game-led, so the players will be making decisions as they aim to develop their skills.
And it’s a session you could run with weaker and stronger players. In Chris’s case, he has a development team.
Look out for a full write up in Rugby Coach Weekly, and also for details of my coaching session with Chris!
And congratulations to our runners-up Chris Andrew and Robert Ayers.
