A session to help increase attacking options against a flat defence and communication between players, the chipper and chaser. MORE
This session is about the techniques for kicking in open play under pressure, and then pressurising the kicker and charging down poor kicks.
The session can be developed by playing “penalty touch”, a game to improve the length and accuracy of punts. Pair up your players. One player stands 15 metres from the halfway line. He kicks for touch as if from a penalty. If the kick makes touch, the second player takes the ball from the point it went into touch, walks in 15 metres and returns the kick. If the ball does not make touch, then the original kicker has to retire 20 metres to kick again.
The winner is the player who forces the ball to go out on their kick on their opponent’s 5 metre line. Repeat the game with the second player starting. Then change ends and start again.
