Matt Elliott looks at defensive structures; the good and the bad.

He's a veteran coach of 272 NRL games and Matt Elliott is back on NRL.com for season 2016 to dissect all the plays that matter in The Breakdown.

This week Elliott looks at defence and identifies three key things to a good defensive unit: attitude, individual tackling technique and team structure.
