Beat the Defender 2

Drill Aims

To develop the skill of evasive running and defence.

Coaching Instructions

There are two equal lines of players, one attackers and the other defenders. The attackers run around the right cone and the defenders on the left. The attacker must score a try and try to avoid the defender. The players should not kick the ball. The defender should aim to stop the attacker from scoring. The defender and attacker should be evenly matched. After a player is tackled they should both join the back of the queue. The attacking and defending line should swap sides.


See Beat the Defender. The coach can stand in front of the lines and pass the ball to whichever player he wants to attack. Then the players can join the other line after they have done the drill.
