Successful rugby requires players to run straight and fix defenders. This is a constant challenge to coaches and new ideas and exercises can freshen up your training sessions, this clip has two practises along with some advice from elite coaches
If you can't catch and pass then the rest of the game doesn't really work. Anyway, we spent a lot of this summer going around to different places trying to beg borrow and steal sometimes reinforce what you were doing. I've been the right way, but I think the players demand that of you to say, we're still fresh that we have gone out. We have look we have tried to identify things differently doesn't mean we want to change but it can give you ideas freshen things up. These are videos good for coaches at all levels if they can if they got that ability because you can then play it back and show kids or amateur players what they're doing wrong the time so three go out that way as the attackers and the attackers always go through the green cones. All right, so all three of you are going through the green cones two Defenders, I will call a color or Sean will picked up Sam blue. blue swap sides subsides couple of times where the same situation occurred but we couldn't get any success any ideas. Why have a look at my body shape because I'm coming around here. I'll show you where Shawn was when he passed to the guy on the left. He was in a position like this like this. Okay, I'll show you where other people's body shaped were when they were in a similar situation where the defender in front of them and they were trying to get a pastor one. So keeping that shoulder Square so you can actually see what's going on. So if I need to get it to how we get it to him from here, that's like yeah, I can do that for the sky risk and high tariffs and that's later on the skill ladder. So you've got actually got it. So just think about as you're coming through a try and keep as Square as you can on white. Nice good yellow. All right, good. Yeah, the repetition is is really important in becomes boring. Sometimes that's why the coaches have to invent new drills, but the drill is to emulate what you're trying to do in the game in a smaller phase. Give me the Target why so you know exactly where you want it what else hands out? Why because it's quicker. Yeah, okay, but we've got to make sure it's accurate. We've got to hold our depth on this go. Where's the accuracy? Come on? Okay. What could we do better their debt? Every time appropriate depth? How do we improve improved by going out into the training field the improved by doing that in not so pressurized the situation, you know working on the basic skills, and then you increase the pressure being with every single player, right? International or an under 18, sometimes it can lose that little bit of detail. So we found that you've got to keep revisiting everything that you do and even if it's just for a 5-10 minute period once every two weeks, it's important that you do and cover everything. Let's go lots of times James. Good good. Come on be accurate be accurate same year attacking player you go in and practice your passing and you know, your basic skills that you wanted to get, you know home writing in rugby, which are the basic essential from My Philosophy. I want to play ball in hand. I want to play excite in rugby, you know, I want to play at a high intensity and I want everybody to work on their skills to be a part of that process.
Ex England Sevens coach Russell Earnshaw talks through the importance of depth and keeping "Connected". He uses a simple exercise to work on various techniques and makes it competitive to keep the intensity high
Tackling and contact are key components in the development of young players, this clip shows how coaches can introduce tackling using a game that reduces the risk of injury and focuses on the technical skills
Another great conditioned game for pre-season training. With the addition of 'reptile crawls' for players who have made a touch, you incorporate an excellent core strength exercise that requires concentration under fatigue.
Continuously we see that the best teams are those that perform the basic skills better than their opponents. Basic skills such as passing, catching, running, tackling, and rucking.
The breakdown is an essential element to the game as teams look to control momentum. Mastering the basic rucking and clearing techniques gives many teams the edge, and the quick ball that is required to enable their attack.
The box kick is an important tool in modern rugby tactics. A well-executed box kick along with a strong kick-chase can put teams under a lot of pressure, forcing errors, gaining territory and often reclaiming the ball.
This video focuses specifically on how the ball should be struck for distance and accuracy. This can be transferred to punt kicks as well.
