  • Brummie says:

    Remember to cut hard to the open side, then have a sharp change of direction before heading to the break side. This is likely to generate separation from your defender, and also ensure that you can take advantage of the The Undefended Channel

    Be sure to keep your hips facing towards the thrower as you turn; this makes it easy to maintain eye contact and maximises the amount of time that the thrower has to make a pass
