What you say:
I am so pleased with all of the drills and advice on rugby. I am a player for my local club and we don't have a coach at the moment so I, as a senior player, am filling that gap. With your help, the team has been able to improve our skills.

Rugby Off Loads Drill: Smash through and Pass!

 
 

Description

    3 sets of 2 defenders each with 2 tackle bags placed 10m apart down 15m x 30m channel
    3 attackers

    Attacker with ball in centre with 2 support players set 5m back to left and right.

    Attack runs at bag using footwork on approach to off set defenders - fixes on one defender and smashes through hole - attack carries ball in 2 hands - off loads left or right - receiver repeats on next pair of bags

Coaching Points

    Ball carrier should fix defender with eye contact and use footwork to open space between defenders.

    Attack the defender not the space - use footwork to get in close before impact - sink by bending knees slightly and rise after impact.

    Move into space between defenders with held tightly through collision phase with 2 hands - fingers spread - off load immediately with controlled - soft - pass flat to support player who cuts a line inward and accelerates onto pass.

    Repeat down channel ensuring support players realign themselves with depth.
