Clear out (removing the threat) with Warren Gatland

The game to me is quite simple, you win the collisions on attack and you win the collisions on defence, then you often win the game.” When the opposition players get on the ball in a ruck situation, how do we remove them to make sure we retain possession? This is about contact technique, it’s not something that needs to be done at a hundred miles an hour, a low tempo, low impact approach will help give your players confidence. Once your players have gained a bit of confidence and belief in their technique, you can up the tempo and intensity so when it comes to the game, they can do it naturally.

With the breakdown a crucial part of the game for various reasons,breakdown technique is proving more important,in this activity the decision on what technique to use for each scenario will benefit all players,and progressing to game at the end when all of these activities have to be used will prove invaluable to all players and coaches.
