This drill isn’t so much a wrestling drill, but more of an introduction to tackling… We use these kinds of “wrestles” in rugby league to prepare our players for contact, and to teach them some body awareness skills. Jamie is an experienced Rugby League coach, and doesn’t have a wrestling background. We just use these simply to teach kids the fundementals of tackling. ie. head & body in close, arms wrapped around, drive with the legs etc.
