+ Use movement to unsettle defense - clear your space for someone else to take it. Maintain width and depth (diamond shape).

+ Defenders work together to force play sideways or backwards

Progression:

+ Require penetration to score point: Must combine with endline target to get behind the target while staying onside (give and go, overlap, etc.)
