Pass and Follow, Warm Up Rugby



    • They pass the ball around either clock wise or anti clock wise, you can decide to change the direction youself at any point during the exercise.
    • After the player passes the ball they have to follow their pass, touching the cone of the player they passed to - then get back to their cone before receiving the next pass.
    • The tempo of this exercise should be high.

Coaching Points

    Focus on the coaching points that match up with your session and training goals, and don't forget that you may well have some great coaching points of your own.

    • Players communicate: calling the pass, encouraging one another, use names, have a little fun!
    • Players pass the ball across the body in one motion finishing with their hands towards the target.
    • Receivers hands are out and ready to catch the pass.
    • Players sprint to the cone following their pass.
    • Runners drive their arms at speed when sprinting.
    • Runners change direction quickly.
    • Passes are weighted correctly in terms of distance, speed, and accuracy. It is only a good pass when the receiver catches the ball.
    • Dropped balls happen, even with the best players - the next pass is the most important.
    • Players track back using a number of techniques e.g. run, back track, side step etc.
    • Set passing targets e.g. 50 completed passes and support runs at speed!
    • The tempo of the exercise should be as high as your players ability levels allow, but players must experience success and have fun.
