An interesting discussion on one of the French forums: where would you place your first boule if you were:
- Against a team of strong shooters?
- Against a team of weak shooters but good pointers?
These are the sorts of things that established teams need to discuss and practise.
Some options to consider:
- Get as close to the jack as possible
- Play about 30 – 40cm in front
- Play to the side
- Play a ‘tactical’ boule, not that close to the jack
What would your team do and why?
