Winning the ball to break!

How often do you witness your players stop and stand still, with their hands up in the air, when the ball is given to the other side, when what they should be doing is chasing back to apply pressure and win the ball back so that they can attack on the break?

To put an end to these bad defensive habits the this Session works on getting your players to take responsibility for losing the ball, chasing back down the field to try and tackle back, support their team-mates and prevent the opposition from scoring and launch their own attack!
