PIVOT: instead of a conclusion

How much time do we need to devote to working with line players individually?

How different is their game from the 9m player’s game?

What we see after 5 minutes of one match is the difference in the physical constitution of most line players and other players.

Some are taller, some are shorter, but they are generally larger in volume than 9m players.

The reason is that power in their case is more dominant than speed.

If we do not regard this fact as a default characteristic, it would be a good idea to think about what skills we want to impact through training.

 

This table might help us think:
