The R80 series of videos give some good technical methods and this is one of the simplest and most basic.
Watch for the boxer stance and approach and how square the tackler remains during the tackle.
Since the drill concentrates on technique, it is worth “suiting up” the tackler so he can make multiple rugby tackles.
Overall a good rugby tackling drill that is simple to set up and easy to observe for good technique.
