This is a drill that teaches players to gain possessions through teamwork by protecting the ball winner and to release the ball to an outside running player to clear the contest area. When extended this is a good method of clearing the ball from a stoppage in the backline and driving the ball deep into defence by switching into the corridor.
This drill has proudly been supplied to us by coach Michael Lonsdale.
