Fullback-backs have to catch the high kicks referred to as up and unders, garryowens or bombs. having taken a catch, the full back may choose to return the kick, and so good tactical awareness and kicking skills are required. increasingly often, full backs are used to start counter-attacking moves from depth. thus, they need to have excellent attacking skills, pace and open field running prowess. in attack, the full back generally joins the three-quarter line between the outside center and the openside wing, providing the attacking team with an extra outside back.
