Skill Practice Description
• Play 7 v 7 Continuous Rugby i.e. after a score, the team who has just scored, keeps possession and immediately starts attacking the far try line.
• This allows attacker to play against broken defences (defence not spread in a flat line across the field of play).
• This will help players to use evasive skills and maintain continuity, with more passing before being tackled (3 second recycles after a tackle or it becomes a turnover).
Key Coaching Points
• Quickness of attack at a disorganised defence
• Skills to attack space
• Footwork and evasion skills
• Scanning skills
Relevance to the Game
• Great for coaching counter attacking and challenging speed in organisation of both attack and defence.
• Any player can be ball carrier and communication is vital as is decision making in identifying space and the best way to attack it successfully
