Triangle Cutting Drill: Under to Awayby Brummie
If the initial cut isn't available, turning to cut to the break side is a fantastic clearing cut. In this pattern, we add another option, a deep strike, which is ideal when cutting in isolation.

Tips & What next?
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
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
Use this drill to practice:
A handler, A, starts with the disc in the middle of the width of the field, marked by D1. A cutter, B, starts 3-5m downfield of A and 3-5m towards the open side. Optionally, they can be guarded by a defender, D2.
- B cuts towards the open side; A fakes at this cut. Note that if you choose to defend the cutter, D2 will need to position themselves according to your defensive strategy; see Establishing Defensive Priorities
