Tactics: first boule

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?
