Second line of defence - Sweeper system
Rating: 4
from 13 members ratings

Improve your side's alignment with the Sweeper System. This rugby plan will help save your team time and energy when defending their lines, while also working on shepherding attackers and forcing them out wide.

By using the sweeper system, and keeping a man behind your own lines, your team will protect themselves from opportunistic high balls, chip kicks and grubbers from the opposition as they try to exploit gaps in your team's defence.

Furthermore, it's a great way to have a get of jail free card. If the opposition breaches your defence your sweeper can stop the breakaway attacker in their tracks and give your team time to realign and recover.

What's in the Session?

This defensive session will see your players working as a tight unit, keeping a man just behind their back line to sweep up any players who manage to squeeze their way through your team's back line barricades whilst also looking for weak points in the opposition's defence!
