Coaching Points:

  • Players know how we press
  • Need to focus on the recovery of pressing players E.G Example #9 stepped on GK didn't get it. must recover onto CB so the build out team can not restart
  • If 2 or 3 can't get there but we've pressed with #11 who goes next?
  • When the forwards don't initiate the press remain compact
