“From a 7s point of view you want to get from the set-piece to the breakdown in the shortest distance possible” In this video Sam shows why starting on a positive running line from set piece will get you to the breakdown faster, how important it is to communicate with your Number 10 and how to identify the right running lines from exit play.
In this video I will take you through drills for the tackler and the first support player at the breakdown. I’ll show you the techniques and thought processes I use when approaching the breakdown. These are the techniques that have worked best for me, I swear by them and I hope they work for you too.
Warburton takes you through the skills of sealing, clearing a ruck and leeching, skills that every player needs in the modern game. Watch and learn from one of the world’s best loose forwards as he shares with you his tried and true techniques that help him win the shoulder battle at the breakdown. “I still do these exact same drills for 10-15mins at the end of each training session”
