Rugby Drill: Agility Pick n Place


Aim: Used for a warm up drill or general SAQ and ball skills.


Mark out a channel as shown in the video. Six players divide into two groups of 3 and start at the top of the channel on either side of the channel. Players work in pairs. Drill starts with a pass being made at the top of the channel. Players then run down the side of channel stepping off the cones placed in a zig-zag pattern. They round the last cone and run up the centre of the channel placing and picking the ball for each other. When they reach the top of the channel the ball is passed to the next pair who repeat the drill.

Coaching Tips:

Short sharp steps accelerating from cone to cone.
Good low body position when placing and picking the ball.
Accelerate into the ball when picking it up.
