EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

U9 Front-on tackle tracking

Get your players used to getting in front of the ball carrier to make a strong front-on tackle.

 

Front-on tackle tracking

1. Mark out a 3m square area. Put an attacker on one side of the area and a defender on the opposite side. Give the attacker a ball.

2.When you say “go”, the attacker moves from side to side along his side of the area, while the defender tries to mirror his movements to stay opposite.

3. When the attacker thinks he has lost the defender, he runs forward and tries to cross the defender’s line to score.

4. When the defender sees the attacker making his move, he moves forward to make the tackle.

5. Start at walking pace, then increase the speed.

6. Develop by having a feeder who passes to the attacker as he moves forward onto the ball.
