Here is a rugby top tip that should improve your rugby players’ catching skills.

Most of us know that you need have your hands ready to catch the ball. A “W” shape for instance.

However try getting your players to point their fingers towards the ball.
1. It means there is flex in the fingers as the ball arrives. The hand lifts up as the ball arrives.
2. Keeps the ball in the fingers and off the palms, giving more control.
3. Tends to push the elbows away from the body, leaving less chance for the ball onto the chest and easy movement of the arms.
