Defending

Player A starts the game by passing to Player B

Player A becomes the defender and B the attacker

Player A must stop Player B from reaching the red or yellow cone, this is decided by the coach who will call a colour.

The game is restarted by the attacker passing to player A, who is now is Player B's position.

Coaching Points

* defending position - high/low - arms out/in

* Attackers with skills / speed

Start with shadow defending (no tackles)

Progress to standing firm (only 1 attempt to put foot in)

then onto full defending
