Try Analysis | Reds vs. Waratahs
Waratahs Try Analysis
1. This is called a second phase play by professional teams. Which means a set play is performed by the team from a ruck.
2. Notice the three forwards run around the ruck away from the camera, creating a decoy and forcing the defence to mirror them.
3. As the play unfolds, watch the Reds number 11 return to the edge of the field he is usually positioned on.
4. This creates the hole for the Waratahs fullback to fly through the gap at pace. Also, notice where he starts running from – behind the Waratahs number 10. Perfect pass from number 6, brilliantly executed try.
