Draw the Person - 2v1

Ball Carry

The attacking player must have two hands on the footy.

Body Position

First movements are straight.

Pass off the leg that is opposite to the support runner e.g.: passing left, have the right foot forward on the ground, making sure that the feet and hips are square down the field.

Get the defender interested by attacking the inside shoulder of the defence and pass the ball from no more than a couple of metres away (this will vary depending on the situation, early or late pass).

Speed on the run

Ball Carrier – attack the inside shoulder of the defender at speed, isolate the defender (get him interested) then slow down to make the pass (fast then slow). Slow down as you see the defender's feet turn to you or commit to making the tackle.

Support Runner – opposite to the ball carrier, off the line slow then receive the pass at speed (slow then fast). Accelerate to full speed once the passer has drawn the defender and takes a step with their feet to make the pass.

Running Lines 

Ball Carrier – attack the defenders inside shoulder.

Support runner – start straight, hold up the defender, when the ball carrier prepares to make the pass, this is the cue to attack the hole. To engage the hole, the support runner  must show a genuine change of direction and speed and do this as late as possible.

Location of the hole – if you were to draw a line in the middle of the space between the two defenders, you must aim to get to the side of the line that is closest to the ball carrier.
