Part 3 showed a basic skill missing – hands up and across to take that army pass. None of the players had their hands up before running. One step passing in that drill would have been more effective.


Interesting indeed. Realign and find the space in front of you.

A question: How do you avoid BD at a tackle? By KBA? Not sure I got it.
