Counter-attack

The counter-attacking team should:
  • have trust and confidence in their team mates and a collective will to counter attack – the ball carrier must know they have support to try an attack
  • communicate the best place to attack to team mates
  • possess one-on-one skills to beat defenders
  • possess support skills to offer attacking options as well as a desire to protect the ball carrier
  • be able to cover the back field in case of turnover
