    The Lineout and how to win itThis book is great from young ages (15+) up to seniors. It provides a comprehensive overview of the lineout process and thinking, tactical and strategic considerations and down to earth advice. One particularly pleasing feature is the number of options for set up it provides for certain positions on the filed. Another great publication from Dan and the Team
