Just on the intro- is it too far for the number 8 to run all the way to the far wing from the previous lineout? Also would you consider a decoy inside the 10 with a pod of 3 outside him- u need to hold the drift- otherwise the defense line can ignore the space between 9 and 10 when the pod is outside of 10? This put more linespeed pressure on forward pod. Finally all 3 man pods should require a sweeper behind the middle man- in the event the defense compresses and you can roll the pass out the back of the 3 man pod and outflank them ala Wales v Wallabies SFS 2012? The overall variable here is who is where in lineouts and how to amend it all off a shorter lineout. Scrums are easier to allocate roles of for forwards.

Off the wide ruck would you not prefer to play off 9? Great defence teams will normally be aggresive off the line to put pressure on the 10 off the wide ruck. Unless you be creative and add an inside option off 10 to hold the line speed? Allowing you to still play off 10 off a wide ruck?

Brilliant. The use of the blocks as learning aids is quite effective compared to a PowerPoint. You’re engaging the players and empowering them to provide options in your attack shape. Well done.

For us, if the hooker is a 1 he stays in that channel after the line out vs sprinting to the opposite side. Our expectation is, the backline supports the first breakdown and then 1 3 3 1 form is completed at the second or third phase.

The importance of decision making and communication of the first five eight to let the pods know where they have to position themselves.
Gerard Mullen England
I believe its highly unrealistic to ask hooker to sprint to opposite side of pitch from line out . Most of time there is no connected back on the shapes
