EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

Ready to tackle rugby warm up drill

Rugby drill set up

Four players stand five metres from a line of four players, facing each other. On a signal from the coach (normally touching a ball on the floor) the first four come forward to meet second four. They then:

  • Bump shoulders.
  • Grab and drive.
  • Tackle to the ground.
  • Carrying a ball, they are tackled to the ground, get up, then compete for the ball.

Remember to change shoulders and switch round the two teams.
