Providing options around the circle is most important for the Wing Attack and Centre players who can't move into the circle, but need to get into a good position for passing to the GS/GA.
Passing warm up with the aim to get to an opposite box, and attackers and defenders changing based on possession. Then attackers work on passing around the defenders 3ft mark by varying passes and stepping out. The next 4 practices are all focused on players making themselves available on the circle edge, gradually increasing the numbers of players.
