The Breakdown (on Defence) with Richie McCaw

Breakdown skills are critical for any player. In this video I look at the three big decisions to make when you are a support player in the defensive line and the techniques to deliver the most effective actions. Being effective at defensive breakdowns is about great decisions and absolute commitment.

It’s often said by TV pundits that rugby is a simple game, but when you hear RMcC explaining how he dominates the breakdown in 3 simple steps, you realize they might be right. Great video for young players of all positions, and quite a few older players would benefit as well!
