High quality coaching exercises by David Clarke

No commentary with these exercises, but they are taken from clips from the University of Queensland Rugby Academy. I think they are part of their testing process

There are some key factors to note:

1. Leg drive in contact – the “conqueroring” player is on his feet driving longer than the losing player in contact.

2. Narrow arms before contact, not spread.

3. In the passing sequence, the “whip” of the hands to accelerate the ball through to the target.

Interestingly the passes dip before they reach the receiver – what are the reasons for the dip? (I will post those soon…)

This is high quality work. UQ has some outstanding former players. The placement of the ball is far better than I have seen in UK.
