RUGBY SKILLS

RUGBY SKILLS

Learning the skills needed to play rugby can be challenging. To help, we've created a series of videos where expert players share their tips with you!

With its tackling, passing, scrum, line-outs, kicks, etc., rugby is a sport that requires a mastery of many different technical moves. In our series on rugby skills, our partner rugby players explain these various moves and the phases of the game, and give you the tips you need to do them right!

WHAT IS A SKILL?

Rugby skills are the individual technical moves performed during the various phases of the game. Working on one's skills is a key part of training, from rugby school all the way up to the pro level. The goal of such training is to improve the player's individual technique in a number of different areas: passing, tackling, rucks, kicks, etc. It is therefore important to do exercises related to these skills all throughout your playing career in order to get and stay at the top of your game in every area. As you progress, the goal is to make each exercise linked to a skill increasingly more difficult in order to help you become increasingly comfortable in any game phase (longer passes, tackling from both sides, recovering the ball from a ruck, more accurate kicks, etc.). Here you'll find a non-exhaustive set of videos explaining the main rugby skills, to assist you in your learning journey.
