Overload Rugby


Set Up:
A small sided game where teams play high tempo games. This game can be played as Touch/Tag or Tackle. This is an overload game in favour of the attack to create numerous scoring chances in a short space of time.

Key Factors:
• Coaches have spare rugby balls ready to introduce at all times.
• Coaches decide and can regularly rotate the attacking combinations, challenging players to react and adapt.
• Overload touch should see players in space communicate where space is to players on the ball. For coaches, highlight the benefits of moving the ball to space.
• Keep numbers on teams small to maximise involvement
