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.

To help your players avoid making mistakes and make sure all your players (and not just your backs) are confident catchers, this session works on your players' kicking and catching ability.

What's in the Session?
