Defence and Contact Drills

For any coach who wants their team to hit harder, run for longer and defend better

Packed with drills designed to produce a relentless rugby defence, this DVD is ideal for any coach who wants a more aggressive, but also skilful, defence on the rugby pitch.

Presented by Damian McGrath, who has been part of the England set up since 2001, the DVD targets two key areas within the game: aggression and contact fitness.

Covering both team and individual skills the DVD addresses the mental and physical sides of defence and contact.
