AFL Training Program: Draw and Create a Loose Man
Draw and Create a Loose Man

When a player is outnumbered and has to cover two opponents, they will eventually be forced to stop the run of the ball carrier. Having drawn the opponent, the player can then give a handball to their free teammate, or dummy past the defender. This drill practices running in lines to get past a 4-on-2 contest.
