This section expands thoroughly on the many options available at the tackle contest - surely the most significant, in terms of attacking opportunities, of all of the "contests" in the game. Players will also learn how to take opportunities in support of "cross-field runners" - a rare skill exhibited by only a privileged few.
The Advanced Section will enable you to explore the old saying, "There is no defence to perfect attack!".
Attack covers building and sustaining pressure on defences through urgency and continuity of attack. The Practices will enable both the coach and the players to become more instinctive and less prescriptive. All of the phases of play will provide easily read options which will allow for instinctive recognition of the opportunities available. This will lead to clinical execution and more tries.
Defence explains various patterns, including "back-three" and "back-four", and the principles of "kick-chase". The meaning of, and necessity for, "shape" in our defensive line is explained and practised.
Kicking offers specific game-related scenarios for the various kick options and poses more questions for the defence to answer.
Throughout this Advanced Section, allow the players "to explore the practice". You may be surprised with the outcomes!
