Scottish 7s drill

This drill helps a team to target a weak link in the opposition. Set defenders out in a line with one player highlighted with a different colour bib or top. Set 2 or 3 lines so the attacking team can easily identify the player. Line the attacking team facing the defenders and start the attack. The players should follow usual play following their pass and keeping communication high. 

The attackers must target the highlighted opposition. They should switch or pass the ball along the line to get the ball near the highlighted defender. They should not take contact but attack the gaps around the highlighted defender. As the attackers run through the first line of defense they should pass the ball along the attacking line so they can attack the space around the highlighted defender of the next line and so on.
