Play starts with the defenders.

If successful, play then starts with the Blue team from their defenders.

If the Blue team win the ball back in any of the zones, they try to keep possession and score in their Red zone using their attacker.

Players stay in their zones to start.

No limit on amount of touches.

Players should still keep some kind of formation/shape.

Forward runs to support are encouraged, however they need to choose the right time to do so, without leaving themselves short in defence if they lose the ball.
