Offload & Continuity with Gregor Townsend

Offloading the ball is a skill that everyone in a team should have, not just backs. Continuity relies on the attack finding space, this means the attack finding space in the defence and trying to keep the ball alive. A successful offload depends on having effective support runners. In this course, I’m going to show you drills and games to help develop your players offloading skills, support running lines and decision making in this critical area if the game.

Course reviews

excelente clase del pase en el punto de encuentro y de los apoyadores. muy bueno

Argentina

Muy claro

Argentina

Clear explanations, the power point key points are perfect, I will be using Gregors games this season.

France

Be careful, these games/drills can instill some bad habits, especially in your forwards. They may develop a tendency to stay out of rucks when needed. This is a great tool to add to the “decision making at the breakdown” or decision making at contact before there is a breakdown.

Argentina

Estaria buenisimo que lo pongan en castellano!

Argentina

Trying the keep the ball alive as much as possible is making rugby more attractive for everybody. I had the chance to participate last year at one of Gregor Townsend sessions and I’ve really been impressed by his coaching skills. I really like his style and I consider that rugby needs to be played at full speed. Great video especially for junior coaches.
