Re: Kicking ball to opposition

Kicking is fine but it it has to be a coordinated plan. The kick thats stays infield needs a good chase so that the kick lands as the chaser arrive, so we are looking for a turnover behind the gain line.

You can also kick with good effect diagonally for the wingers to run on to.

The kick that goes out should be combined with a good chance of stealing the lineout.

George Ford kicks really well and in JJ we have in my mind one of the best kick chasers around. As a club we should be good at it, but it does need practice to get the height right.

Worst offenders for kicking the ball away...usually the scrum half!
