Use this continuous 2 v 1 exercise to keep the players thinking and adjusting with slightly different scenarios each time. It will also help develop communication. No 2 v 1 situation is the same, so why train specific situations when you can continually mix it up with this activity. MORE

U7 MINI-TAG | ATTACKING 2
ACTIVITY: SCORING A TRY
- Divide your players into teams of four. Put the teams into lines, each line about 3m apart, on one side of the area. The player at the front of each line holds a ball.
- When you say “go”, the first player in each team runs to the other side of the area, scores a try (see below for the correct technique) and then runs back to his team. He gives the ball to his next team mate who repeats the move.
- Each player goes twice. When the last player returns the second time, he gives the ball to the front player and everyone sits down.
- Develop by making the player score the try in the middle of the area, run to the end before turning to pick up the ball and give it to his team mate.
