Drills by skill

Drills by age group

How to develop rucking and communicating 2

Your best friend is a ruck buddy

in Practice plans, Rucking & Mauling

Retain more possession in the tackle contest to generate more quick ball. Make the nearest support player to the ball carrier get closer and make better decisions. This works well in close quarters where there are lots of defenders. Use this session to improve awareness and communication skills. MORE

Dizzy defence

in Defence, Rugby drills

Help your players react in defence to cover the main threats, and use the best defence possible in the circumstances. Use this set up to develop into a bigger game scenario, depending on your numbers. MORE

How to improve passing and running skills 2

Target Mars in outer space

in Attack, Practice plans

Make your players look for a target to run to while taking a pass. They cannot exploit space unless they run hard into it. Use this small-sided game followed by a match simulation to improve spatial awareness and decision making. Their target is virtually unknown until they almost get there - like heading to Mars! MORE
