Steps & Diagrams
Tips & What next?
A handler, A, starts near the centre of the field, marked by D1. Four cutters form a horizontal stack approximately 10m downfield.
D1 > A > B > C > E
- The players on one side of the field clear deep to vacate space; in this example, B & C.
Brummie says:Defenders are optional in this drill, as is the fourth cutter F, 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.
E should be prepared for D4 poaching; see Engaging Defenders
