Josh Rose: Full-backs getting forward

Central Coast left-back Josh Rose is known for getting forward... Here he explains when he pushes forward and what he does with the ball when he gets there... and why

Deliver the final ball

“I’ve worked a lot with Arnie over this. He keeps telling me, once I get there, relax, slow down.

More after the break

“If it is a cross, don’t cross it to nowhere, as it is still a pass. 

"Arnie says try to pick my player and relax on the ball and get it to where I want it to go.”

You never know if you don’t shoot, or not?

“It’s the same with a shot. You get in situations sometimes where you think, do I shoot or do I cross? But you never know if you don’t shoot.

“You don’t want to be selfish some times, but other times it’s best to take a shot. As an individual, you’ve got to try and pick the best times.”

Learn when through experience

“Experience helps with that. The more games you play, the more you get into that situation.

“At the end of the game, you’ll know in your head, ‘okay I probably should have done this’ and you’ll know for the next game.”

It's part of the game

“I’m 32-years-old this year, but I still find myself in games thinking when I put a cross in,“Oh, I should have shot” or I shoot and someone’s open, but it’s part of the game.

“You’re always going to have those options and you’re better off having them. It comes down to experience about taking the right option.”
