Breaking Defensive Lines | Opposed Skill (22-P3)

Set Up / Organisation
Break that First Line of Pressure! This shows how your defensive unit (343 in this case) can play through, around and over defensive pressure. Do opposition press high, have a mid block or drop deep? Solutions to all of these are covered in this animation. This practice shows how simple possession practices can develop attacking and defending principles. Here we are building an understanding of how teams can play out in a 343 in move the opposition defence one way to switch play the other before breaking lines to finish.
