Hi! Welcome to the fields of Springfield
Rugby Club. My name is John Walkman I’m the currently the head coach for Springfield Rugby Club and we’re a Division 3 side. Today I thought just to get the
basics through of holding a rugby ball and how to pass the ball in two
fundamental areas so keeping the ball as flat as possible without spinning the
ball and the second one we’ll get to practice how to spin the ball. Firstly is
holding the ball it’s always holding the ball with two hands easy to run the ball
with two hands on the ball. This gives you the option to give you a better
direction of where the pass is going to go instead of tucked under your arm. A
lot of players do this running and it takes several more seconds from this
position to try and release the ball back into two hands. Doing that will
actually cause can cause a fumble which you call we call on a knock-on and
basically we give them the ball away so two hands on the ball we retain the ball.
To pass the ball elbows up as you turn the ball that’s the distance from the
chest. So if you turn the ball over words that’s about the distance from over so
when you’re passing the ball that’s the distance you need between your chest and
the ball are passing keeping your elbows high we’re going to keep the simple pass
without the spin it’s just two hands on the base of the ball and as you come in
it’s just pass the ball across so it comes across your chest and you’re
aiming slightly and forward of the person you’re passing to it’s not
exactly you’re directing the pass to the opposing player
it’s your pass is basically slightly in front and they can come on to running
onto the ball and as you take it across you’re almost flicking the wrists so as
it comes across you’re flicking here receive we catches the ball in two hands
and able to carry on moving the ball across his chest passing on to the next
player the other option is then it’s the passed with the spin the spin past gives
you a little bit more speed in the ball a little bit more accuracy and taking a
lip the ball a bit further as we move forward across the field so the OL idea
is taking the hand slightly up shoulders up nice and high and taking
the ball and as we move the board your hand starts to spin over this allows the
ball to spin this creates speed and further distance from a normal simple
pasture so from this position two hands on the ball my shoulders are nice and
high and it’s a cross same process but I’m taking the ball high with my hands
on the higher end of the ball than the mouth of the board with the spin pass
you can get more direction more speed and accuracy on the past so as I step as
you see the ball starts to spin as it released my hands so again as I step I’m
releasing a step of my my weight comes from my past foot on my right foot
releasing my hips and lowering the ball at head elbows up releasing the ball
through okay so that was the two basic fundamentals of trying to pass the ball
to hands low of the ball it’s a nice little flick pass when you come to spin
the ball slightly higher take the ball through the spin that is your basic
session of today of handling the ball and passing or to front of malarious

    Hi, i am not completly ok with yours explanation, spin pass, you never use you elbow across, but you need to pusshing true. The angle arm is straigth and go to the chanel you are creating closed to your body. Like that you have more power and precision. To do that, the big sign you work rigth is the hand position when you finish you pass: need to be in sky direction and not to be in field direction…

    poor technique

    This is not correct technique "Clasic pass", main mistake is discobolus movement. Key factors depend the principle of the effective swing of arms says that it should be look like the pendulum of the old clock. However, it is a great technique for fast, short and flat passes – "hot potatoes".

    If we takl about spin pass,

    you have to change the way you keep the ball.

    The leading hand is placed on the bottom half of the ball

    and the fingers should cut across the stitching of the ball

    fingers of the second hand are placed diagonally on the upper half of the ball, principle of the effective swing of arms should be look like same same as clasic pass the pendulum of the old clock
