An opposition ruckman has shown up on our forward line as the loose man. What should we be ready to do now? Here's some options - provide some of your own in the comments below or discuss the pros and cons of the options suggested.
- If his role will be to act as a key position player our Ruckman will come into the forward line, not necessarily to pick up, however putting himself into a dangerous position.
- This will make the opponent come over and pick him up, if the opponent doesn’t pick him up then we must create space ( clear the area) for this player then this will create another dangerous option.
- While this is happening either the FF or CHF plays up the ground becoming the ruckman.
DON’T DEFEND ALL THE TIME.
