The Voice analysis introducing the line out the line out presents a different tactical problem as the restart is to one side of the playing area and no players are bound to each other. Also. The lineout is smaller in terms of numbers as there are four players involved this in turn leads more players positioned across the pitch building on their spatial awareness. The players here demonstrate a natural tendency towards the principle of penetrate and outflank a defense the ball carrier attacks the Midfield and the support players work hard to saturate the vulnerable wide space where the score is eventually made. Here the space is opened up by the defense in their eagerness to cover a wide attack. The ball carrier is quick to recognize this opportunity and all flows to his support who with excellent footwork stands up the last Defender to score. From the line outshone the players have scored from the use of very tactical decision making they have scored on both the far side and the near side of the pitch by attacking through the middle and moving the ball wide and by cutting back into the inside Space.
