  • Setup

    Groups of 8-12 players. Each group needs 1 cone, 1 football and 1 bumping bag. Coach (C) stands 10m from stations (A) and (B), while (D) is slightly closer, holding the bumping bag.
  • Step 1

    Teammates (A) and (B) lead out together, Coach (C) rolls the ball to (A)
  • Step 2

    (A) gathers and runs towards (D), drawing this player and allowing (B) to run free. (A) fires a quick sideways handball to teammate (B) once (D) is committed to the tackle.
    When handballing (a) must look at teammate (B) rather than their opponent.
  • Step 3

    (A) follows up their handball with a bump to (D), freeing-up (B) by taking (D) out of the contest
    The take - give - bump happens quickly and players must concentrate on being clean and accurate under pressure
