Passing in a Line

Drill Aims

A simple drill to improve handling skills for all the team.

Coaching Instructions

Players line up in 4 queues on the try line and the 22. They pass down the line as shown. They should ensure the ball never goes forward and that the players do not close the gap when receiving or passing. The last player to receive the ball should concentrate running on to the pass at speed. The drill should be repeated from both sides so that players get to practice passing off both hands.


Variations can be introduced to practice more advanced skills. For example, the players in the middle could switch or the 1st player can miss pass to the 3rd who passes inside to the 2nd who then miss passes to the 4th.
