EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

Rugby coaching game for passing and defence

Three-on-three touch rugby places the onus on the attack. Players have to work extra hard to make overlaps or get into space. With only one tackle and quick turnovers, there is a premium on fitness and accuracy in this game.

Set-up

Players: 3v3.

Area: 20m x 10m box.

Equipment: One ball.

Game notes

  • Use only touch tackles, with a two-handed touch below the waist. Don’t allow kicking.
  • Restart the game for infringements, with the non-offending team starting with the ball on their own try line.
  • Let the game run for one minute, and then rest. You can have more than one game going at once.

Score

One point for a try.

What to call out

  • “Pass and move”
  • “Keep running back to run forward in support”
  • “Talk up in defence”
