An overview of the "fall away" press by Ryde 1st Grade Captain Alex Jones. The fall away press is an alternative defensive structure to the full press, where the defending team "falls away" to in front of the half way line before attempting to trap the attacking team into side line pockets. Its a useful defensive structure for teams trying to compress the middle of the pitch and avoid becoming stretched and also for teams less confident in their ability to execute the full press

We want to see from our strikers working hard to exert pressure on the opposition's outletting to 1) take away their passing options and 2) take away their time to make a measured pass. The role of the right striker in this example is to run the right line to ensure the opposition player's only passing option is down the sideline. We also want him to push up quickly and make the tackle if possible but it is important that he doesn't rush in and get eliminated
Mr Retardie
as 1st choice I mean?
Mr Retardie
Do you want your defender (in this case a right winger/forward) to channel the player and use an other player to blocktackle him? or just the one defender with the other players marking their own man?
