    This throw can be tricky; some players prefer to throw a curved pass over the opposite shoulder

    Try moving D1 by faking the around break first to give yourself more space to throw

    V-cuts feature a sharp change of direction, and are ideal for shaking off defenders. Ensure that you sprint the cut underneath and practice planting hard before turning and accelerating away
