    Rugby 101 - Counterattack

    78 views Rugby 101 - Counterattack It’s very simple, if a player kicks the ball down field it may be caught by an opponent who rather than returning the kick, may elect a counter attack forward. The cool thing about this is that it often catches the opponent unaware, because in most cases they expect a kick back. This allows some space for the ball carrier more than what he is used to and at that point any opponents that were in front of the kicker are initially offside. The only disadvantage of this method is that usually the ball carrier’s team mates are some distance up field and unable to provide the support if the ball carrier is tackled by an opponent.
