Flyhalf Decision Making Model

When 10 catches the ball he can run through a flow chart:

What part of the field am I on?
if in our 50m, Kick Flow.
If in their 50m Run Flow.

Kick Flow
1. is one of the back 3 missing/out of place?
If yes kick to that space. If not…

2. bomb between two of them.

Run Flow

1. is there a lazy pillar for the blindside wing?
if yes pop inside. If not…

2. is there space for the slide runner (behind the punch runners)?
if yes pass out-the-back. If not… there a gap for me?
if yes take it! If not… there a gap for the punch runners?
if yes draw and pass. If not… let them take contact for you anyway.



Scrumhalf & Flyhalf need to understand this principle of patient & wise buildup and how it provides the backs with holes in a backfoot defense.

This is a great success if you can suck in defenders and force the defensive line onto the back foot as they retreat onside & figure out how to reset.
