Practice is whole-part-whole to encourage decision making within game situations, but the FOCUS is on forward runs to break the defensive line.

The white lines are used as "offside" lines.

The practice had 15 players and the coach set up with 8 v 7.

Part - timing runs (15 mins)

One of the groups did the practice shown above, whilst the other group did the practice on the next screen, they switched practices after about 8 minutes.

The practice was designed to keep possession until you could release a team mate into the end zone onto a forward pass. If the pass was successful, the reds would keep the ball and attack the opposite end.

If the blues intercepted they had the same objectives.
