Set up with both GS/GA in the circle
GA takes 1st phase just outside the circle
C hits top and WA playing to pocket
GA can choose to go C or WA and then enter the circle
Ball has to go in and out of the circle 3 times before a shot can be taken
X8 then discuss and repeat
Switch pairings as required
GD and GK - Playing sides and or top and base in the circle looking to switch onto attacker in their space
Aim to confuse the space and make it look full
Keeping their attacking on one side - ideally non ball side and in limited space and/or forcing the attacking into uncomfortable positions - high in clrcle, close to the ball carrier into another D in or out of the circle
Limit space for attack to use
Communication is key
Post must be protected -
Attacking movement must be slowed to set up defence swtich - own job first
Good body angle to see ball and player
Keep footwork going - stay moving in the space you are covering cant be static
Step strongly to space to stop the run
Run feet through for intercept and go with two hands
