Tips & What next?
Encourage D1 to experiment with different ways to defend this space. They could try (a) positioning their body in the way of B and forcing them to 'dance' to get past them, (b) setting up with a buffer that they aim to maintain at all times, (c) committing to winning a foot race
Use this drill to practice:

Player B sets up 10m form the disc.
Defender D1 sets up as a poach in the open lane.
