Building a Backline with Wayne Smith

In this video we will build a backline based on logic. Establishing firstly a base combination between 9 and 10, which is hugely important for a backline to function and then looking at the roles of the rest of the backs. Giving us a backline with real rhythm and timing.

Course reviews

Very informative thanks

Australia

a superb communicator. love the way he improves a players performance by getting them to ask why they can do for / need from their teammates

England

Really enjoyed it, coach kept it simple and easy to understand. Thank you.

USA

Really excellent and a good visual demonstration of some of Jim Greenwood’s backline principles.

USA

great demonstration of how to put on a backline, very clear and easy to understand .. thank you ..

USA

I agree with the staggered depart and each player having a trigger, but in the drills with the three different starting points for the defence the attacking line is so focused on getting the ball to the outside that they no longer move forward effectively.

Wales

im having a real problem watching any videos tonight, every one i have tried to watch has frozen on me what is the problem.

Ireland

Another fantastic demonstration from Wayne, if I could only aspire to these quality demonstrations, I try, maybe one day. His clarity of explanation and objectives achieved, a true masterclass, thank you.

France

I’m a belgian trainer and it’s very interesting to see how you explain and train your players

Belgium

Just what I’ve been looking for !! It’s a joy to watch such excellent coaching delivered in a calm and specific way. Im delighted to have found your site and looking forward to watching many more sessions.

Many thanks,

Darrin

England

This is gold.

Canada

Genius way to organise the depth of your backline. Easy to follow, challenging and effective.

Great Britain & Northern Ireland

Really simplisic but effective stuff, I’ll will attempt this with my backline this week, as sometimes we over run attacking ball. The triggering of the players run is probably the most difficult for individuals to grasp. I will review this and report back on the success…..
