The Top 5 Sneaky Lineout Moves

A strong line out is key to a solid team performance. Without quick, clean and secure ball at the set piece, teams struggle to maintain possession and take their opportunities. The best teams excel in their ability to do something different when it matters most, so here's another from the archives, Sean Maloney’s Top 5 Sneaky Lineout Moves.

Rugby is about creating and attacking space, and in the set-piece the space behind the line out is rarely covered. It's one of the areas where you can get a bit creative, find some free air and the ball is yours! However for our younger viewers, don’t try number 5 at home!

Tony Woodcock’s try in the 2011 World Cup is still being talked about today. The best teams have something special to pull out of the bag in big games, taking the ball off the top and looping through the gap between jumpers, the All Blacks hooker sailed over the try line untouched.

Unusual moves aren’t just for the professionals, number 3 is a great grassroots clip from the lads at the Oratory School with “Salsa Ball”. The penultimate clip is another throwback to amateur rugby, the old fashioned “everyone in” line out!

Rounding off the top 5 is Ged Robinson’s try for the Rebels in 2011. A similar move to Woodcock’s RWC try, passing the ball behind the line out left Robinson with a clear canter for the try.

An extra mention should go to Steven Luatua's Quarterback throw to Nick Cummins for the Barbarians last year, but are there any others you feel should have been included?
