An excellent junior coach, attention to basics, Hamish must have been a teacher, his explanations and props first class. As a Coach I am always learning, it is good to re educate.

Freddie The purpose of any drill is to identify, isolate and improve individual parts of of a skill. I have found this drill (pt7) does this in spades! Early catch, run square, keep depth, weight of pass. Like all drills it does not mirror match conditions but as this group success rate was not that great it highlighted all these skill need to be developed without pressure to begin with. As I mentioned below and at the session by adding more pressure we can test the skills that we have introduced. We see week after week the Crusaders convert tight numbers up situations with a mastery of these skills. Skills that they practise extensively with drill like these.
I can’t really see that this last drill (the part 7) is fit for purpose: Using hands to create an overlap in a very small space in which you simulate a 4 on 5. In a real game situation the defence can always press up and tackle before the ball is moved to the 5th player, or if they are that deep that the defence can’t do it they can just press and drift easy without losing meters.

Scott Thanks for this. We did not get a chance to film this but a great game to play after this drill is a touch game with only 2 defenders allowed in the 15 m channel . Double points for a try scored in there. This challenges the attacking team to flood the wide channel and use quick hand to beat the outnumbered defenders. i like to flip,flop between the drill and the game to get a full squad buy-in.

Perfect drill well explained will try tomorrow
Martin Slagt Netherlands
I like how there is a logical progression, like adding the No.8. and the extra “Free” attacker. Looking and decision making.
John Walker England
The RFU guidelines demand that there is no contact during the summer months until 2 weeks before the season starts. These defence drills covered by Hamish show that as coaches there is still a lot we can cover without full contact. Great drills, simply explained.
