Coaching the Lineout- tactics and techniques

  1. 1. COACHING THE LINEOUTBY SAM NORTHCOTT SPORTS COACHING PEDAGOGY 8914
  2. 2. THE LINEOUT• The lineout is a method of restarting play when the ballhas gone into touch. The opposing forward packs, line upin two parallel lines with roughly a one meter gap inbetween them.• The ball is then thrown down the middle of these two linesusually by the hooker, however any player is able to throwin at the lineout. The ball is then contested by players whoare lifted into the air by their assisting team mates in anattempt to catch the ball mid flight.
