Is there any better feeling than putting in a huge hit? When the crowd give you a chorus of “Ooohs!” with a visible flinch, you know you’ve done your best. Unfortunately, these tackles are few and far between, but by following these simple tips you have a much better chance of making those crunching tackles yours.
Step A: Practice, Practice, Practice
You can’t expect to read up on how to make a great tackle and then just go out and do it. You need to practice going through the movements and get your body used to get into the right position. It may sound like a cliché, but every tackle is different – whether it’s an entirely different player or a slightly different position, you need to be able to adapt to various conditions. One of the best ways of doing this is by using rugby clothing like rugby hoodies, rugby joggers and rugby t-shirts to help you go through the paces while minimising your risk of injury.
