In Hard and Fast with the Miss Pass, we set up a “miss pass” training session. The miss pass is a long pass which skips one player, with the missed player drawing a defender in the process. MORE
In Minis rugby, especially in the younger age groups, putting together three successive passes in the same play is an outstanding achievement. Here’s how to make it easier.
Think long-term and develop your players because stringing together three or more passes will be crucial to them scoring and becoming a rounded team as they move from Minis to Juniors and beyond.
Spaced out at 2m intervals in a staggered line, the players run, passing the ball along the line. The last receiver scores a try.
Next, use ruck pads or tackle tubes as static defenders and leave the pass until as late as possible.
Finally, finish with two defenders running across from deep and get the ball wide quickly.
- Ensure everyone runs at speed. No one catches the ball standing still.
- Accurate passes with players calling for the ball.
