Goal Defence (4/7)

List item

Allowed in the furthest two thirds of the court and their own goal, the goal defence is responsible for breaking up the play, man-marking their opponents and intercepting when the ball is available. Because they are allowed in their goal, they can also be called upon to act as a makeshift goal keeper if the situation arises. Unison and communication between the goal keeper and goal defence is vital to a team’s successful defence and will ultimately go a long way in deciding a game.
