The modern day full-back is tasked with pressing forward and overlapping the attack-minded players as a means of providing an offensive outlet to his team, but also having the fitness levels to return to their starting position to perform defensive duties.

Organisations are stressing for women not to worry about these figures, and for them just to keep checking their breasts for any differences in feel, size and pain.
