Iveragh Eagles Skills Challenge, Part 1
Welcome to the first Iveragh Eagles skills challenge. The coaches were keen to find a way of keeping us all connected, so here it is,  and it would be great to get all of you involved. The challenge is open to all ages including parents/coaches/aunties/uncles/dogs the lot. First off we’ve chosen a simple drill that can be done by anyone with a rugby ball and a wall, if you don’t have a ball, let us know and we’ll get one out to you.

In the video below you’ll see Craig Casey going through a few reaction drills, we are focusing on the first he does below, so eyes open, just yourself and the ball. The challenge is to see how many balls you can catch back off the wall in one minute.

If you drop a ball, pick it up and keep going, if you break a window, make your excuses once the minute is up (ideally, don’t break any windows). Once you’ve completed the minute enter your details in the form below and we’ll produce a weekly leaderboard for all age groups. You will be awarded bonus points for filming your attempt, you can either upload the video directly into the facebook group or send through to the coaches on whatsapp. If we can have your entries by Friday of each week it will give us a chance to do the scoring, Good Luck!! #eaglesabu
