Being able to support the play for the opportunity for an offload or to quickly get the ball out of the ruck is a great way to continue an attack and will not allow opposition defence to set. However to be able to offer the support, you need to develop your players decision making and ensure they know their roles and responsibilities.

Continue the attack through good decision making.
