Coaching points

Can we recognise when to play it backwards (depth) or sideways (width) to retain possession?

Movement off the ball at all times, checking shoulders, verbal and visual cues.

Encourage the T players to give instructions to the receiver. “Man on” ball should go back where it came from. “Turn” receiver should turn and look to advance.

When ball is advanced can the passer advance at pace to unbalance defenders?
