DESCRIPTION

The fat side run is a tactic used to get the ball to a leading tall forward, who is able to lead into space (the coned area) on the "fat Side" of the ground.

The term "Fat Side" is used to describe the area of the ground where there are few players and plenty of free space. It is usually created when forwards, and their opponents move to one side of the ground.
