Set Up15m x 30m channel - One defender two attackers one behind the other 5m apartLead attacker runs at straight at defender. Attacks space left or right takes tackle and off loads to support player running down opposite channel – that is attackers attacks left – support player goes right.
Ball carrier should fix defender with eye contact and use footwork to open space between defenders – attack the defender not the space – use footwork to get in close before impact – sink by bending knees slightly and rise after impact. Move into space between defenders with held tightly through collision phase with 2 hands – fingers spread – off load immediately with controlled ‘soft’ pass flat to support player who cuts a line inward and accelerates onto pass. Repeat down channel ensuring support players realign themselves with depth.
