How to beat a man 1-on-1 with Jeff Wilson

How to beat a man 1-on-1 with Jeff Wilson

Beating a player one-on-one is a skill that once mastered can go a long way towards making a player a far more dangerous prospect on attack. Jeff Wilson, himself a prolific try scorer for the All Blacks, was a master of the art.

Wilson, now assistant coach at North Harbour, was one of the most talented sportsman to ever come out of New Zealand. He was a dual international in both rugby and cricket, but it was with the odd shaped ball that he found most success.

A fullback and wing with immense speed and skill, Wilson scored 44 tries in 60 Test matches between 1993 and 2002. He was a lethal finisher who was part of a golden era in All Black rugby.

Another All Black great, flanker Josh Kronfeld, visited Wilson to get some tips on exactly how to beat a man when youre in space with just one defender in front of you.

Whether youre new to the game or have been playing for years, theres no doubt that theres very few more qualified to talk you through this than Jeff Wilson.

The video also includes a few classic tries he was involved in over the years.

Step, swerve, fend, chip, chase, score we hope you enjoy and find this helpful.
