The best check in the world is the wrap check (if executed perfectly) except it's both underused and underrated. defenders! Learn the wrap check and your dreams of the world's best defender will be all that nearer. please email back with checks you think to be amazing.

On the link that Mr. Stanford posted, the "ding dong" check is clearly the best check out there! Very much underused, especially in our league, as I think it's a great "get out of jail free card" and also looks wicked and the name is just so fricking cool!!! Haha

i dont mind the wrap check...i think that most people use it at the wrong time

id say 90% of all wrap checks come when someone is getting beat top side, and the wrap check goes around the back as the defender is trailing...this is the worst possible time to do it because to do the wrap check right, u have to step towards the wrap, further away from the guy running.

the best time for a wrap check is when someone is dodge from a corner, and u want to turn the man back to GLE

Wrap check on their turn or Body them out the throw a wrap.

Most wraps are used when someone is going for last minute glory after being beat. Wrap checks are cool because they usually lead to Windmills, which make you look sick lol

In a single cameo appearance for Hull against Liverpool in D5 last year, I executed an awesome wrap check from face, completely stripped the guy and was given a two minute penalty and informed wraps were illegal in D5.

No-one had told me, and since then, I've not met anyone from any other teams that think wraps are illegal. Anyone care to ellaborate?
