  • Angus and the players demonstrate and breaks down the technical aspects of tackle turnover to perfect this very important rugby skill. This includes timing, being strong over the ball, angles and body position.
  • These skills are reinforced to players in the Canterbury and Crusader rugby environment and can be easily taught to players at all levels.
  • Running time 17 minutes.

Angus and the players cover:

  • Optimal body position and spatial awareness when contesting for the ball at post tackle.
  • Getting back to your feet, staying strong over the ball and being hard to shift.
