EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

VIDEO: Ball juggling for better grip

Use these exercises to that the ball receiver catches with the ends of the fingers, not the palm of their hand. These activities come from experienced elite skills coach, Tosh Askew.

 

  • Spread the hands across the fat part of the ball.
  • Hand soft hands as they catch, then grip tight with the ends of the fingers and thumb.
  • Progressions are important to keep pressure on the ball carrier.
  • Looking at the shape of the ball helps the player to see where to put their hands.
