The aim of this exercise is to work as a team when trying to win the ball
back. The server plays the ball in low to N° 11.
2) N° 11 aims to get away from the defender and make space, here he tries to move down the left-wing. Meanwhile N° 6 after correctly judging the attacker's actions, moves across on the blind side to intercept.
3) N° 11 not having seen N° 6 loses the ball.

the opposition player's movements and tries to surprise him.
