Intercepting Passes

Intercepting the padd is a great way to turn defence into attack in a flash. Develop your players mindset to be marking tight and ready to step in front of their opposing player so you can spring counter attacks against an unstructured defence. It’s a great way to stay tight and compact in your own defence too.
