best way for boys to learn On the culture. I mean here we have a culture where we say that they learn from making mistakes. They learn from getting outside of their comfort zone Tim three good for well done five turnover. So going basic sizes for me at one as a player is the more enjoyable but for me, the fundamental is decision making you've got my decisions the whole time. It's a chaotic game. And what games do is allow the practice of making loads of decisions and the decisions are never the same. So going to play truckball so important one in Direction the challenge for the attack is to get through 10 passes. Okay. Now, we're all gonna be simple if you can stop the pasta. So if only possible to Sam and I can stop him look him up and then we'll jump in and stop that bull. It's a turnover but sound from fights get the offload all she don't anyone getting thrown to the floor, etc. Etc. So, what do you think I'm looking for watching this game is about Yeah, so from the tap want to do this do that first? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, and also, yeah qualia pass. Yeah, you can run with the boycott movement Direction and then from the defensive point of view. What would it be for hard work study or with the attackers yet? Brilliant star work right numbers numbers to the ball. And then with that what we got to do before we get a numbers are for everybody. Yeah. Yes scanning what we all done. You've altered that light 12 year old individual decides to suck in. Okay. The width is the yellow. So what we gotta do to use this way, you cannot intercept or slap down. You can only read the tack and choke him good Vision one. Well done very well done six seven eight nine. Don't get choked it. Dad how did I mean everyone get into it everyone taking it seriously and things like that makes it brilliant and the tempo and everything just comes together now can make it harder. So if Harry Potter's me the ball I can't give the ball back to him make sense go through at that in now black small first four three, two one get it get it get it Well Done Reds French booo. Do I didn't one two, three great one for what we do well and it's basically fun in the spike. So, how can we create this facing if there is space? What can we do so we can run into it. We've got the bouquet. What does that do to the fenders lose him in and also if I'm gonna run in between these two what I'm gonna do Stephen, what's that do crash best answer? Okay. How do Come back defensively what we gotta do since lemur Mark. Yeah get straight in the second we get on somebody. What should we look at be looking to do because there's obviously the focus of the game is to choke. Yeah, so we target the board. So when we go to a game, it's not completely different. It's relevant 3. Kim well done. Get away. Well done Reds. Holy their War for a stump really the second. We saw the bunny joggled it for he jumped him outstanding. Well done plate. One, two, three, four, five. The reason we try and create chaos is because the game's chaotic this if you just do really basic drills which high repetition but actually it no decision making no no pressure on the skill. It means that when they go to games and there's people flying Outta line distressed making decisions a dodgy whatever conditions, you know, all those examples the chaos actually creates. So when they get into a game to this real composure and that they can do and perform a skill on the high pressure, you know, the simply and clear in their minds and they get high accuracy. So hopefully that will be demonstrated here. I mean, I've progressed so much as a in myself as a player and also to work in the team
