Both players must go out on the outside of the flags and return through the gate. The shield must put up good resistance and try to hold their ground. Rotate the players so they all get the chance to use the tackle shield, and also be the driver and supporter. Coaching points: Ensure that the ball is rolled within the grid, therefore restricting the distance the ball carrier can run into the shield. The supporting player must return through the ‘gate’, ensuring they come from an onside position to join the contact (the idea of a gate at the back of a maul or ruck is one that is often used by referees to indicate where players can join).
There and back is one rep. Each player completes two reps and then walks slowly to fully recover before going again. Start with three sets of two reps and build up slowly over a period of weeks. Coaching points: Encourage a real change of pace and controlled movement. At the point of acceleration the players should lean forwards slightly, shorten their stride and drive hard back with their elbows. Progression: Use stopwatches to record times over the middle 5 m. Increase reps by one or two per session while ensuring the quality of the middle section is maintained.
Equipment: Four cones and one ball. Description: Create a square using the cones (about 5–10 m wide). Three attackers and numerous evaders work within each square, and the objective is for the attackers to tag the evaders with the ball. Once tagged the evader must stand still. The attackers can pass the ball to each other, but once they are in possession they can only pivot on one foot. ‘Free’ evaders must be aware of stationary ‘tagged’ evaders, and move and dodge around them. Coaching points: Encourage lots of communication and movement between attackers, and look for quick but accurate passing.
