Great drills – great wording there “lower shoulder wins and winning race in the break down areas.” Thanks for sharing.

How is it y’all have just the “thing” the moment I need the thing…. Part 4: Kill Cleanout is perfect for my small, but mighty U19 women’s side.
John Nel England
Like this very much. Like the 3 key points at the recap. great drill also. For forwards this will be great, winning the race and also resetting runners quickly once we have secured the ball.
Jarrett McGregor New Zealand
Very good game based activities James and team. I have struggled to formulate a simple game where wingers that are on attack scan and call so seeing your activity to promote this is a game changer for me. Ka mau te wehi.
Daniel Bianco Ireland
A 2nd defence line( L 2) in the “ building a successful phase play” module could give more reality to the game beyond the first line of defence. Maybe call : yellow for the kind of D and a double number ( 4-1 for example) for the numbers in first and second line of D to give Attack the chance to train continuity beyond the L1

Very usefull drill! It would be even more helpful if you could add the subtitles (CC) at least in english. (in spanish would be awsome!)
Rob Agnew England
Excellent drill to help develop transition/reaction in a game

I like these kind of drills. They have a great impact on the game but are still easy to explain to the players.
