Day 24 of the August pre season training tips: attack by David Clarke

August 24


Good attack requires good core skills. Your core skills also defines your ambition. Attack with your strengths.

Coaching attack means how you intend to take the ball forward. In pre season, split your attack training into three areas:

1. Attack through the opposition: using plays, moves and techniques to smash through the defensive lines. Training should be against an organised defensive line of players.
2. Attack around the opposition: training against a defence that has spaces on the edges. Reduce the number of defenders the players face in exercises to encourage more passing to spaces.
3. Attack to disorganise a defence: either by using kicks or quick rucks to break up the defensive line.

All attack exercises must be against a live defence as soon as possible to add realism and create the right circumstances.
