If a ball is either too high for you to pass or off to the side when you're in the front row and you make the decision to allow it to go past (for passing by your backrow teammate), let them know!
Talk first, then OPEN UP, which means turning to the side, rather than ducking. I've seen many backrow players take balls squarely in the face when their front row teammate suddenly ducks.
So if you're going to let it go, tell your teammates, and then open up, and do both in plenty of time for them to react.
