The Body and Low Catch

There are two other significant forms of catching in Gaelic football.

The body catch, a cradle catch basically, where the aim is to smother the ball that is coming in high, to the chest, as fast as possible and then move with it. The other is the low catch where a ball has been punt kicked and is travelling low and fast along the ground. It involves bending over, on the run and scooping the ball up in the chest to secure it.
