Rhino Rugby has four new Jackal Bags and a Collision King sled, all made in America, to enhance practicing the breakdown’s effectiveness and safety.
The Jackal Bag is a more traditional columned tackle bag that has a sleeve for a rugby ball. After you make the tackle, the unique design forces the you as the tackler to work to free the ball from the bag, simulating an in-game poach.
The three other Jackal Bags are hand-held shields specifically designed for rugby training with an eye towards safety.
“They’re made specifically for coaching teams at the breakdown, at the collision, with mainly the safety of the person who’s holding the bag in check,“ said Jim Carlberg of Rhino Rugby USA.
“To practice really good, hard rucking and jackaling and getting control of the ball, some poor bastard is always on the other side of the demonstration getting bashed by two or three people.”
The Collision King is the newest sled on the market and is designed to eliminate practice-related injuries and ramp up ruck training.
“The Collision King took out the issue of a coach being on the other side of the bag, where the guys can come in as hard and heavy as they want. They can pick it up, they can gator roll it.
“The bags are the same way -- they’re super thick, and the extreme angles that they have on them keeps the person holding the bag in control. With the double and triple handles on the back, they they have control over the guy who’s coming in to jackal, compete for the ball or clean out the ruck.”
