EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

German goalkeeper

Can your players beat a key defender who’s out of position? Use this tag game to work on taking a free pass or running onto the pass.

  1. Have one attacker make a free pass to another attacker.
  2. A defender (who’s like the German goalkeeper playing in the World Cup against South Korea), starts out-of-position on Cone A.

  1. The attacker aims to get to the end of the box before being tagged.

  1. If the attacker is successful move the defender up to the next cone.
  2. Finally, have the defender come from the cone at the end of the box.

 

DEVELOPMENTS

  • Have the player running onto the pass, but starting from the back of the box.
  • Put another defender in front of the attackers. Now the starting ball carrier run with the ball. It now becomes a 2 v 1 with another defender chasing from behind.
  • For non-tag players, have different starting positions for the players, like on their fronts or facing the other way.
