Drills by skill

Drills by age group

The interceptor

in Attack, Attack, Rugby drills

They can lift or break a team’s spirit – such is the power of an interception try. This exercise develops defensive and attacking decision making as outside backs look to intercept the ball as it’s passed wide. MORE

How to coach and develop attacking options from a maul 2

Maul a-peel

in Practice plans, Rucking & Mauling

If you have control of the maul with the ball at the back, you can continue to attack close to the maul by “peeling off”. This keeps your forward momentum going and pressurises the fringes of the defence which may not be in position to stop the peel because they are engaged in stopping the maul. This is a good session for forwards. MORE

How to promote the use of keeping your head up 2

Heads up and beat the chaos

in Passing & Handling, Practice plans

We need to develop players’ ability to pass with their heads up to see what’s coming. This session helps them pass in corridors of traffic and limit the chance of collisions. It is a simple session to set up and has plenty of developments. MORE

3 ways to stop a ball poacher

in Contact, Rugby drills

The best way to stop an opponent stealing your ball is to beat him to the breakdown. But if you do lose the race, use one of these three techniques to thwart him – in and out, scissoring or breaking the pane. We don't endorse the "croc roll" where the player is rolled out. MORE
