Block, Lunge, Jab Tackling

Tackling in all its guises – including channelling

  1. Force player onto the strong side (channelling him) – line your body up appropriately
  2. Ensure you are not square so you cannot get eliminated if he goes right
  3. Keep appropriate distance (usually a BIG step and half away from ball carrier) – commit when certain
  4. Jab tackle to play for time
