Ball juggling rugby warm up drill
Rugby drill set up
Your players should keep their heads up and look at both of their hands throughout this rugby warm-up drill.
- The player passes a ball flat from his left to his right hand. He then passes flat from left to right and loops the ball back from right hand to left.
- Adding a second ball to the warm-up drill, the player juggles, so that one ball goes from left to right while the other loops over from right to left.
Extend the warm-up drill
The more adept players on your team can try using three balls in the warm-up, or ask them to try to run while juggling two balls. For those who can’t juggle, one ball is good enough to warm-up with, providing they’re practising to be able to use more balls.
