Defence is the same as for the first hip throw. To counter, let the attacker get in position for the throw with his right leg across your thighs but do not let him break your balance forward - keep upright! As soon as you have stopped the impetus of his throw, step with your left leg deep in between his two legs. Balancing on this lift up your right thigh under the opponent's right thigh so that he is lifted completely off the ground. Pivoting on the ball of your left foot swing round to your left and unload the attacker off your thigh on to the mat. This can often be a very heavy counter.
