Tyler Kinley on Ho-stack Poaching

Sockeye’s Tyler Kinley joins Felix to talk about a series of tweets he posted on 29-30 Dec, specifically the frustrations he feels when defenders fail to poach effectively against a horizontal stack offence. We then see an example of a successful deep poach, and talk about how teamplay can be used in different ways to cover for the poach – to afford the defender the liberty to leave their 1-to-1 matchup, and keep the offence contained effectively. Full interview/analysis available for Patrons.
