When a player is running with the ball in hand, then it is usually he who is more vulnerable to the potential impact a good, square shoulder can have.
The opposing player usually has a bit of time and a few yards of a run to line up the player in possession, and make the hit. Well, in the Derry U16 A Championship final, such a situation arised [..]
