  • Setup: note that handlers B and C are shown to help illustrate the play, and are not really required when drilling this movement.

Pre-Requisite Drills:


  • Brummie says:

    Defenders are optional in this drill, as are handlers B and C, and the fourth cutter H, but are shown in the diagrams for context.

    Defenders will quickly realise that your clearing cuts aren’t real options, particularly if those cuts are not made with conviction. Be prepared to take throws to the clearing cutters if the defence adapts.

    Try following up this movement by having one of the clearing cutters go deep, and one coming back to the now open side of the field
