A good foundation exercise for technical development of practicing lifting with a tackle bag. You could use a contact pad or a tyre if you do not have a tackle bag. Key factors : Strong body position - Fast feet - Straigh back - Lock out the arms - Use momentum of both players
A progression from the 3 man scrum - developing body shape and positions
Develop the front row as a foundation for the building of the scrum
Players walk into the lineout and lift as soon as they are in line. If there are no defending jumpers, the best option is to go straight up in the middle. This requires practice to ensure timing and communication between, the hooker, jumper and lifters is right.
This is a very effective drill for developing decision making and awareness in support runners off a tackle situation
A useful drill to build decision-making skills. Attackers must choose from a variety of running and passing options.
Using a coloured grid, pods of 3 can work on their timing and technique when moving before the lift. The coach calls which colour cone to jump from, so the players can learn to react quickly. Rotate jumpers so that players practice working in different pods.
This practice develops communication in a three v three game format
