The ball carrier and one support player runs towards the other group and, at the middle the ball carrier goes to ground and presents the ball. The support player straddles the player on the ground, picks up the ball and runs on to the next group, passing the ball to them
2 attackers with a half back attack a defender
The support player should be able to read the situation and apply the best techniques for ball security, either driving out or sealing off the ball.
The ball carrier walks up to the defender and turns away to present the ball to their own team.
The defender should try to turn the ball carrier and keep him facing away from support.
Two players with shields stand facing the runners on opposite sides of a grid. On the command, the players run into the shield and spins to their right before joining the back of the group on the left hand side. The practice keeps repeating.
