The lineout

  • Use progressions to ensure safety
  • Start with support players lifting rucking pads and tackle bags to build technique and coordination
  • Ensure support players are using the legs rather than the back to support the jumper
  • Work with jumpers to ensure they maintain a strong, long body position throughout the jump
  • Focus on developing the speed and coordination of each jumper/support group
  • Ensure the thrower practises individual skill
  • Challenge the jumper to perform different distribution options after the catch
