Contact Support

Key Principles

  • Entry: hips square, wide foot base, chest centered entered over ball, flat back, hit low to high and through the threat, 
  • Attack: Generate quick phase recycle with minimum numbers required: "LQB: Lightning Quick Ball." 
    • Ball-Carrier (see Ball-Carry section)
    • Barrel: deals with nearest threat
    • Cleaner: cleans up edges of contest
    • Safety: if required, cleans up. 
  • Defense: turn over possession, slow down attack speed, require attack to commit more numbers to contact:
    • Tackler (see Track - Tackle section)
    • Contest & Conquer: either go for the ball (poach) or win the space past the ball and win contest with the 1st supporting attacking player.
    • Adjuster: key decision maker as his/her role is to win the ruck if the CC has done a good job, play away if we have won the ball or adjust to set the next defensive line off that tackle. S/he also is the key communicator to the tackler to roll away and the CC to get out if s/he has done enough.
