If your coach decides you will be a fullback, it means he believes you are a good defender; you have the ability to kick long, accurately and consistently. Apart from playing defensively, you will be expected to kick the ball back into play when the opposing team scores a behind.
This article seeks to give you advice how best to do that.
The first thing to remember when kicking out after a behind has been scores is, until the umpire calls “play on”, you are in a protected zone including the goal square and a ten metre area outside the goal square. No opposition player may enter this area until the umpire makes his “play on” call.
Therefore, you have time to settle yourself and decide where you will kick the football. There are two kick off scenarios that you have.
The first is:
1. kicking off from inside the goal square: and
2. playing on by running out of the goal square before you deliver the ball.
Kicking out inside the goal square:
Begin your kick-in from the centre of the goal line. This enables you แทงบอลออนไลน์ to kick to either side of the field as well as straight done the centre of the field. Having decided where you will kick the football, use the whole goal square as you run up to kick the football to gain the maximum distance from the goals with your kick.
Playing on outside the goal square:
If you plan to play on outside the goal square, begin your run close to the behind post. This gives you a big start on the opposition player guarding the mark in front of the goal square.
Wherever possible, run your full distance (15 metres) before you kick the football. Stay close to the boundary line to give yourself a greater distance from the opposition players chasing you.
If you have the space to run further, always bounce the ball after 15 metres. This means you can run another 15 metres, before you need to kick the football. This also means a long kick will fly over the defenders allowing your team mates to turn run after the ball and force the ball forward towards your goals. This also means that your opposition has to get the ball and turn around in order to attack, making it easier for your players to tackle. At the same time, it allows your defenders near the goals to take up defensive positions ready to repel the next attack.
