EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

VIDEO: Pre-season – The FLAP game

Purpose of session

Warm up whilst practising the skills we want to encourage the ball carrier to use.

F – footwork

L – leg drive

A – aggressive rip

P – long Place

Rules

  • 8 v 8 touch rugby in half a field (say, a 40m by 30m box)
  • You must utilise all four aspects of the skill
  • Award a point each time for excellent execution
  • Turnover if not sufficiently well executed

Key points

  • Points allocated for correct technique as well as for scoring tries
  • Therefore, the purpose of the game isn’t necessarily to score a try!

Key question

What tempo do you need to execute the skill at?
