from 6 members ratings

Give your players the confidence and skills they'll need to pluck a high ball out of the air and claim a safe catch, even when the wind is gusting and the rain is pouring.


Catching a high kick is not an easy skill, unlike many other skills in rugby which are based on instinct and reactions, players have a lot of time to see the a high ball coming and often 'over-think' which leads to mistakes being made.
