Rugby Ruck Clear Out Drill: Realign and Support



    8 players with one ball - 2 players in Tackle Suits one ball carrier and five support players.

    The ball carrier attacks the suited player and takes leg tackle - 2nd suited player quickly moves in to compete for ball.

    At this point the support players move in to clear.

Coaching Points

    Encourage full tackle with use of strong arms and a quick movement from the 2nd suited player to compete for ball.

    2nd suited player should adopt a low, strong position over ball with weight on feet encourage maximum knee bend to secure lowest best body position.

    Clear out player should adopt low body angle on approach, hence knees bent, shuffle footwork, eyes on target, head up target lower sternum of suited player big impact and drive player up and off the ball with strong leg drive with short steps.

    In this instance we have set up three separate channels for your players to attack, with the third channel containing three defenders. This is good as it encourages players to get up quickly from the tackle and realign to support a new line of attack.
