If you look at the plates showing this throw, you will see that both the thrower and his partner are in the same position. The only difference is that, if the thrower is doing the throw properly and breaking his partner's balance, the partner will be bent over backwards. To block this throw step back with your right foot and lean forward with the upper body so that the thrower will not be able to break your balance to the rear or reach your right leg. For the counter let the attacker come nearly in for the throw, taking care that he doesn't break your balance to the rear, step round and back with your left leg. As you do this keep him pinned tight to your body with your arms and do exactly the same throw (o-soto-gari) back on him.
