How can I minimize the importance of the fullback with my gameplan?

My starter is hurt and I am not very comfortable with the options I have.

Hi Josh

Unfortunately, the opposition will inevitably determine how much your full back is involved in a game.

I would suggest that you help a less able full back by not kicking the ball to the opposition as they then have the option of returning the kick. It will be important to get your back three supporting each other efficiently and keep the ball in hand as much as possible.

Good luck with the game

Simon

Thanks Simon. Unfortunately, the fullback is a tough player to hide. I appreciate your help. Great thought on reducing my kicking.
