Developing offloading and 2nd wave defence

Here's a bumper session for you that can easily be spread over a few training nights. In this plan we get your players to focus on two crucial elements of the game offloading and the 2nd wave defence.

I used it last week and it went down a storm.
I hope you like it too!

Offloading:

The aim of the session is to develop your players' ability to offload the ball once they have broken an initial tackle. Players should be able to offload through the 'front' and 'back' door to create more opportunities in attack.

Second wave attack:

In addition to looking at offloading the defence should be looking at how they slow down / turn over ball using the '2nd' wave attack. This is when the initial line of defence has been broken and a cover or support tackle must be made.

Try this plan with your team tonight!
