  • Brummie says:

    B can use some tricks to get open, but should aim for a single decisive cut

    This is just as much a drill for A; they need to get used to reacting quickly to the options available and completing the pass to B

    If you are struggling, try initiating movement by running directly at the disc, *then* turning. This makes it harder for the defender as they are back-pedalling.
