EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

Max out on fixing

There are times when you want maximum participation for a small unit skill. Here, you can use lots of small boxes to play fixing games with 2 v 1 situations. You can move easily around the boxes, observing and feeding back.

They are so many ways a 2 v 1 situation happens in a game, the more you can randomise it, the better.

ACTIVITY

  1. Put two attackers with a ball back-to-back with a defender in the middle of the box. The players run to the line in front of them and then turn to attack and defend.
  2. Move to full contact quickly. Rotate the players between boxes for different challenges.

DEVELOPMENT

  1. Add a wide box behind the original box. Repeat the 2 v 1 challenges, but add one player to each side.
  2. These players have to run around a corner of one of the boxes, arriving to support as the 2 v 1 progresses.

GAME SITUATION

  1. Your team need to create 2 v 1 situations and then execute them.
  2. In this game of 5 v 3, both attack and defence enter a box from the same side, run to a cone in the middle and then split off to run round a corner before entering the box. The groups can split in any configuration.
  3. Move the middle cone around to offer different challenges.

TECHNIQUE

  • Ball carriers: move quickly and change angles to interest defenders.
  • Supporters: hold your runs before committing yourself at pace.
  • Defenders: close down the space for the ball carrier.
