What ifs

Blue back 4 sitting in, how break down? - Look to get the 9 - 10 on ball in-between the line and there 1sy touch acts as a trigger for the 11 - 7 to come off the line and attack the space in behind the back 4.

Blues are pressing high - Look to move the ball quickly and look for the spare man. Utilizing the width created by the 11 - 7 can we look to break lines over the press
