What is a good multi-directional agility drill for rugby athletes?

As a rugby player you have to be able to react and move quickly in all directions. A great drill that involves both reaction time and quick movement is the clock drill. For this drill, create a circle on the field with cones. Stand in the middle of the circle in an athletic stance. Picture the circle as a clock face with numbers on it. Recruit a partner to yell out numbers on the clock face while you move to the corresponding time as fast as you can. Once you’re there, change directions and get back to the middle of the circle. Repeat the sequence immediately. Do this drill for 10 – 30 seconds. This drill will get you sprinting, moving sideways, at angles, and rotating which is perfect for a rugby athlete.
