Great session by a smaller player, use of footwork angles of running, creating holes. A lot in a brief session.

It’s interesting to see the Xs and Os of various Rugby ploys. But they come a alive with with Shane Williams. Great to watch a master at work.


angle of side step i found helpful how to draw the player and off balance him always thought more of a side step is meant to be running straight at the player
