Coaching points

We are in the RED ZONE, so ball retention is number 1 priority

Think about how we can get go forward ball - 2nd pass, latch and drive, pick and go. Must retain ball!

Wait for dominant ball carry, then quick clearout, fast ball - attack now takes ball flat to the gain line with aggression - aim is to beat D in to the space behind and make them tackle whilst going backwards
