Support in action
Watch the video above. It comes from a Pro14 game between Leinster (in blue) and Glasgow (in black).
The team in black has gone forward.
That go forward has stopped and a ruck has forward. This is continuity, where the attacking team retain and recycle possession in the contact area.
Watch the video again. Can you identify three ways in which either the ball carrier uses their teammates, or the teammates help the ball carrier to either go forward or maintain possession.
Jot them down or remember them, and then move onto the next topic to see how you got on.
