- Reflect upon your last few games. Are there areas where your defence is consistently being beaten? Discuss with your assistant coaches what adjustment you could possibly make to avoid this.
- Discuss with a coaching colleague what contested activities they use to practice defence. What change would you make to the activity to specifically teach defending middle penetration?
- Have a colleague watch your team play and then discuss with them what defence they would employ against your team. Would you use the same defence against their team?
- What are the main teaching points defending a turn-out cut? How can you teach and practice this?
