The Site has a number of excellent videos from the world's best Attack coaches including Wayne Smith, Joe Schmidt and Gregor Townsend.

Part 1. Warmup - L Shape passing 6:36 Member content

As always start the session with a warm up with the ball in hand.
The L-shape passing drill is a good way to prime your players for this attack based session.
It gets the players moving into different lines in attack and defense.
Black Ferns assistant coach Wesley Clarke presents this drill very well focusing on the skill elements being developed.
Also any of Mils Muliana’s or Brendon’s Catch and Pass drills are fine to warm up with as well.

Being analytical on the run is an excellent way to train the eye. ESP where you don’t have a high-performance staff to relay a pond
