Defender X5 plays 3/4 defence with the ball in the corner or at the top, steps across with the inside foot to front with the ball on the wing, sitting on 5's legs to stop him from jumping.
Option - front with the ball at the top.
Three passers work the ball around to attempt a pass inside (no lobs). X5 must play high side when the ball is at the top, front when the ball is below the foul line, and play low side when the ball is in the corner. Points of emphasis:
- battle of the feet, don't wrestle, disengage to move to the next position
- when fronting, sit down on the attacker's thighs
- stay low.
