Team Rugby League activities are on hold, but as we wait for the action to restart, Rugby League stars are sharing their skills with the next generation - and keeping everyone connected to the sport. 

The Rugby Football League have launched the #SkillToPlay online initiative, which showcases some of the game’s finest players and helps children and young people to emulate the skills of their heroes.  

Freely available via rugby-league.com and Our League, #SkillToPlay inspires children through a range of exciting skills and drills, including how to touchdown like the Tommies (Johnstone and Makinson), and run like Regan Grace.  

At the heart of the #SkillToPlay programme are resources to help young players discover the freedom and confidence to try new ideas and express themselves through ‘free play’.   

And there are great prizes on offer for the best and funniest videos submitted using the #SkillToPlay hashtag.  

Week 2 - Running and Carrying the Ball

Week two is all about carrying the ball and changing direction!

 

  • Can you run with the ball in one or two hands?

  • Can you change from 2 to 1 hand and back whilst running?

  • Can you change direction whilst you do it?

  • Can you put the ball around your back or through your legs?
