Kicking the ball from hand is an integral part of Rugby League. There are a number of situations where kicking can be the appropriate action – for example, to gain territorial advantage, push back the defensive line on the last tackle, and score points.

This lesson plan focuses on coaching grubber, bomb and drop kicks:

  • when to use each of these kicking options.
  • understanding the offside rules and how they affect kicking.
  • the tactics of kicking to gain advantage on the field of play.
  • chasing and following-up kicks.
  • positioning of kicks into space and behind the opponent’s defensive line.
