Don't forget I'm old school. In my day tackling bags were primarily used to teach technique and instill confidence into the individual player. These days in reality those bags are no longer used on a regular basis. It was a figure of speech that I have grown up with. I'll amend my statement to read I wish he was learning to tackle 1 on 1, light contact initially.
I understood it as a figure of speech as well. Hitting the tackling bags meant, 'lots of tackling practice'.

I haven't played at a high level but tackling bags seemed to me to only be good for stamina. Hitting the bag, standing up, moving back ten metres, "tackling" the next bag. I think they don't help one with tackling at all. Specially for a fullback where stamina to be in position to make the tackles isn't an issue.
The only way is get the big guys to run at him at training , until he gets it , bags are a cushy option ......

5% working with JDB for technique. 10% getting bigger and stronger. 85% have big buys run at you in training until you can tackle them.

I use to do that back in the day. Light contact , then half speed and then at pace. But I don't believe that they do this anymore. Perhaps someone could enlighten us.
Sloan is still on modified contract, so no tackling for him atm.

Tackling in done in opposed session and with pads in field sessions.
Most tackling and technical work is done in the gym along with wrestling.
