A great piece of advice I once got when I was 16, training with a University side. "Pretty much everyone has the same size ankles... and they are smaller than your shoulders. Now hit em!"

the only way to go forward in rugby is to pass backwards, tackle them backwards and making them run backwards towards their own line!

Very principled of you Ehtch. For my part, I reckon if they take the time and effort to produce something entertaining like this, then I'm all for it.

I also fancy getting my grubby paws on one of those jerseys. Black medium one please Messrs Dump and Kukri!

Best Advice: Rugby is the only game where you can beat the hell out of each other for 80 minutes, then shake hands with no hard feelings and have a beer in the clubhouse after.

Rugby players come in different shapes and sizes.
If you look at their ankles, though, they're pretty much all of equal size.

If your ever up against a big player twice the size of you, grab their jersey plant your feet and fall with them, using there momentome to go to the ground, most props (at least at highschool league) don't have good footing so its not actually that hard to get them to ground!!

Best Advice- Think about your entire team and if you let the opponent by you, you let down the whole team! so just try your hardest and hold around the legs as tight as you can until you get him or someone else helps! Stand your ground as best you can!

I'm nearing retirement and captain a local lower league side. I tell all my players - "I don't care if you smash 'em or not. Just grab hold and hang on till your mates turn up. NO-ONE runs past you!"

Always allow the guy one side to run on - it's easier to tackle from the side than head on - so push him one way or the other. Then when you hit him, go low and aim to lock your hands around the waist or upper thighs with your head behind his back/bum (so he doesn't land on it!). When your hands are locked, slide down the legs....TIMBER. If you go at the legs themselves, you are likely to miss - they move a lot more than the waist does!

Always stay with eachother, don't go alone is a tackle... ball possesion is key

The advice i have always stuck by is "The Bigger they are then the harder the fall!" Then and when i have a prop is running at me i aim for their knee caps, then cant run without their kneecaps.

tackling: eye to thigh, cheek to cheek, bands of steel.

literally works every time, all that changes with age is how hard you can hit.

Best piece of tackling advice I received:
focus on their shorts, that way you won't fall for any dummy-pass or get distracted; it also means you'll hit them low and take their legs away, not get bounced off/handed-off for going too high

Never go into a tackle halfhearted because you will get hurt. Back yourself, run at them and hit low!

Before diving into a ruck, take a split second to identify the danger and eliminate it, rather than just flying in and doing no good.
