If you want to beat defenders, this is the move for you.
It is simple but effective skill every winger and full-back should have mastered as they are often the players in one-on-one situations with defenders.
You need a fast brain as well as fast feet if you want to pull off the perfect sidestep - it's not all about power and speed.
As you approach the tackler, decide which direction you are aiming to run past them.
Shorten your stride to get your timing and balance right.
Step wide with your outside leg, placing your body weight onto that leg, ready to explode off that foot in an instant.
Shift your body weight to the other side of your body.
Then push off on your outside leg, using your inside leg to keep your balance.
Take advantage of the tackler's imbalance and run as fast as you can past them.
Keep looking around to see if there is a team-mate in a better position than you to offload the ball.
