2nd Phase Ball

Every playmakers dream is to run onto quick 2nd or 3rd phase ball, with a defense still trying to reset.

This is why we run a 9 ball or 10 ball forward pod. To get over the gainline, perhaps split the defense into two sides of the ruck.

If the 10 & 12 get the ball off of 1st phase, the defense is perfectly set up and targeting them.

So practically, you want your 9, 10 & 12 to understand that they want the forwards to carry on 1st phase or any time the defense is well set up.

Then you recycle quickly to get the ball into 10 &/or 12’s hands to let them have a go with their options at a backpedaling or split defense.
