Not sure if this has been covered before? Anyway, what's people's take on defending corners? I've noticed that we tend to bring everyone back into and on the edge of the 18-yard box. For me, this is a bit of a crap tactic. It encourages the opposition team to pile more men forward and it allows for zero restbite should the ball be cleared, as it just come straight back in.

IMO we have to be leaving at least one, possibly two pacey players up by the halfway line. This inturn gives an outlet if/when the ball is cleared, plus means the opposition have to leave two, three possibly four players back to cover.
