Week 9- RUGBY



This weeks sport is RUGBY. There are four challenges to complete, don't forget to upload your best scores by midday 12pm, on Friday 3rd of July at


Good Luck!


Challenge 1: Figure of 8

Grab a rugby ball, or any other large ball.

Pass the ball between your legs, weaving in and out in a figure of 8.

How many complete figure of 8 circuits can you complete in 30 seconds?


Challenge 2: Up & Over

Throw the ball over your head, and catch it behind your back. Pass the ball between your legs and repeat.

How many times can you catch the ball in 1 minute?


Challenge 3: Rugby Passing

Stand side on to a partner, 3 metres away from one-another.

Pass (throw) the ball sideways between you and your partner.

Each ball caught, by you or your partner, counts as a successful pass.

After you have made 10 successful passes, both you and your partner must rotate 180 degrees to face the opposite direction. This will mean that if you were passing left then you’ll be passing right, and visa-versa.

How many passes can you make in 30 seconds?


Challenge 4: Keep Try-ing

Place 3 cones on the ground to create a triangle, with each side of the triangle measuring 3 metres.

Starting at your first cone, run to the second and place the ball on the ground, with pressure on the ball when it hits the ground; just like you are scoring a try in rugby.

Leave the ball at the cone, and run a lap of the triangle, picking the ball up again when you get back to it, and scoring another try at your next cone. Repeat this, running a lap, collecting the ball and scoring a try at the next cone.

How many tries can you score in 45 seconds?
