Body position at the breakdown with Eddie Jones
We’re going to concentrate on the second man getting quickly in on the ball carrier by either taking the space or taking the threat out. These drills will help your players decide about taking the right option, once we’ve established this, we extend the drill to the 3rd and 4th man in a game like situation.

I loved this video. Eddie really zeroed in on effective body position for the 2nd, 3rd players etc to the ruck. Make sure you watch the whole video because it shows the players improving every time they reset. Really appreciate the insight
