The game for three elements
I will now create a modified game of touch rugby that has these three elements:
1 Passing in front
2 Grabbing ball early
3 Receiving at pace
The ball carrier must pass when touched and can also pass before getting touched.
The defenders who made the touch cannot touch the first receiver after the touch. This takes that defender out of the game and encourages the attacker who receives the pass after the tackle to run into that space.
RUNNING THE SESSION
Play the starter game for several minutes. I will take a look at the skill sets, get an overview of the aspects of play that need encouragement and highlighting. This in addition to the main focus, which in this case is pass/receive.
Let’s work our way through what might happen next.
