The Rugby Tackle Ring allows players and coaches new options in their contact training before progressing to live defensive drills, or to prevent injury during tough tackling sessions.
The ability to roll the ring allows for work on tackling angles and pursuit of a dynamic target without the high risk of injury. Coaches are better able to correct players' head placement, pursuit angles, as well as the final wrap. Only solid hits to the middle of the ring will result in clean tackles, providing instant feedback for player training. In addition, the internal ball holder can be used to replicate the act of poaching or protecting the ball from being poached just after the tackle.
