Marcus Blackburn avec [(Coaching Rugby Sevens)] [ By (author) Marcus Blackburn ] [January, 2014]
Sevens should never be viewed as an abbreviated form of rugby. Rather, it is rugby magnified, and a closer inspection of the overall skills of rugby. This exciting and essential new edition of Coaching Rugby Sevens offers clear direction on how to coach and play the game of rugby sevens. Emphasising the three key principles of space, alignment and movement, all game situations are covered in detail, focusing on both attack and defence. Each chapter looks at a different facet of the game, and is clearly illustrated with drills, plays and set pieces, linking theory with practice. Rugby sevens continues to grow globally through the World Sevens Series and will appear at the Rio 2016 Olympics. This timely new edition covers developments in the laws of the game and changes in play due to tactical advancements. It also covers how the principles and ideas of sevens can transfer to 15-a-side rugby, providing valuable new thinking on how the two games interact.
