Sideline Isolation by Brummie
This is a flood play that creates space for an isolated cutter
A handler, A, starts near the centre of the field, marked by D1. Four cutters form a horizontal stack approximately 10m downfield.
D1 > A > E > F > G
- Setup: note that handlers B and C are shown to help illustrate the play, and are not really required when drilling this movement.
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
