Shallower entries = harder to defend rebounds
Yes, that is correct - that is a widely known footy 101.
That’s why we’ve opted for deeper entries for the last 6/7 years. Safety of the boundary line.
I listed 5-6 hypothetical adjustments we could look at, I think we opted for shallower entries after 1/4 time againts freo with good effect.
I think it’s a multi-layered approach but if we just keep doing the same thing, we will continue to lose games againts better sides or when it becomes a dour territory battle - finals on the road etc.
