EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

Low man rucks

Set up

Three cones in a one-metre line.

What you get your players to do

Put two players touching distance apart, with the cones acting as a midpoint. The players battle to have their hips past the cones while staying on their feet. Allow five seconds. If the players collapse, then restart.

Look for

The players keeping square – shoulders and hips in line. Short steps. Driving up, not down – eyes looking forward.

Development

Start the players on their fronts. Start the players in press up position (front support). Put a ball inbetween the players which must not be touched.

Notes

Swap over players rather working in the same pairs for too long.
