Eagle Rugby


Set Up: 
A small-sided game where teams play high tempo games. The points awarded for each try are linked to the number of touches or tackles made before a score. More touches mean less points. 


Key Factors: 
• Coaches should have a spare ball or two ready to introduce quickly at all times if game becomes static 

  • Teams have a total of 6 tags or tackles to score in. If they do not, they lose possession. 
  • Encourage players to avoid tackles with a mixture of handling and evasion and keeping the ball alive 
  • Keep numbers on teams small to maximise involvement
