Set up in a triangle formation.Malakai-Coaching-Card-graphic
Coach is to position an upright tackle bag approximately 10 meters away from tackler and ball runner.

On coaches “GO” command, ball runner and the tackler are to run fast towards the tackle bag. On approach the tackler is to sight the ball runner and his goal is to tackle the bag exactly as the ball runner intersects behind the tackle bag.

Chop Tackler Tips:

Sight ball runner on approach. Time your tackle with the ball runner crossing behind the tackle bag. Make sure tacklers head is positioned safely in the cheek on cheek position (tacklers face cheek on ball runners butt cheek) this safley positions the tacklers head behind the body mass of the ball runner. Encourage your tackler to commit to a low chop tackle and to land their shoulder into the tackle bag and to wrap their arms tightly and strongly around the bag on contact and to hold on tight to complete the tackle.

Ball Runner Tips:

Practice sprinting fast with rugby ball in hand.

Rugby Skills for Success

My junior rugby team coaching philosophy promotes core rugby skill development. And my junior rugby team coaching experience has taught me that skill improvement is best achieved by setting your players up for 100’s of core rugby skill attempts at your team practices. see how you can train your kids team 100’s of core rugby skills here on this Junior Team Coaching Success Video

Accelerated rugby team skill learning is impossible without enough rugby balls for your players. A minimum of 10 balls per junior team training is required for real success (I find 12-15 balls works best for me). When you have this quantity of balls available your kids can be constantly in rugby action and attempting and improving their skills.
