3. Clear out.
One player stands over the top of tackle bag competing for the ball. Other player arrives from 2m away to clear out the player, to prevent the threat of stealing the ball.

One Player lies in a Long placement on the floor.
Another player (Jackaler) comes over the top of the player, to compete for ball.
Another player pushes, pulls and tries to make the player off balance.

When whistle is blown, the first player makes a chop tackle on the bag and rolls out the way.

Groups of 2. Everyone find some space. Stand opposite your partner. One of the players (attacker) use footwork and move arround.
