Line Out Throw Drill

Category: Lineout
Objective: To throw the ball in accurately
Gear: 1 ball, 1 Rugby Post.

  1. Hooker stands on the goal line facing the side of the goal post.
  2. Aim to hit the upright at various heights.
  3. The thrower needs to progressively set targets at practice, e.g. three is a row, then five in a row.
  4. You can use cones to set out distances from the post to represent the different distances to lineout jumpers i.e. Jumper at number 2, or 4.
  5. Once precision is mastered, the hooker should practice with real jumpers to master timing.
