Elimination skills: The pop – How to jump over the opponent’s block tackle?

This video shared on Youtube by Team Bath Buccaneers Hockey Club TV shows a very useful 3D skill that is efficient if the player recognises the opponent’s flat block tackle. It simply consists in making the ball pop off the ground by tapping the top of it with the flat face of the stick. Watch how this English player is able to eliminate Mark Knowles’ opposition by using this skill.
