The responsibility to defend is everyone's now we got Corbett visit there. Okay, the skill of the players knows as such they can be that we've done on the Range and still get the ball back and so is there any is there any in the little exercise you could design the actually when we do drive them by is done and isolated we win the ball because it's no good driving. It's a good psychological thing driving a man, but that the still retain possession. So I wondered if someone were bags we could actually win and toughness tongue and put them down to them. We come in like the rest of the island takes mentioned that I was speaking about how they've done some of the rugby league defense and we were talking about these double Hicks and getting way off the getting players. Yeah up off the ground the next way of coming in and he said the rugby league boys did a drill with two bags. Anyway if we could get Him to get whoever is and drive them back and turn them and isolate them and then try to come in and drive on it. That's the best ball in the world to get the turnover ball, you know, and it would only need to finish him and we've got skill and I would like to speak about that because I think that we can get an edge.

Yeah. Okay. So just go one-on-one with that first guy in think about hip Square. Yeah. Come on by move it. Because somebody seen it better or seen a better way of doing it and I think if you're not sharing ideas or not prepared to have the confidence in the environment to do that you sometimes Miss some real Pearls of Wisdom. And you know, I've always felt when you getting a group of players together like a group of lions that you've got tremendous Talent, you've got tremendous thinking of the game. Everybody's come from different parts and but they all bring something with them it will how would have hated to have lost something that was in that room that could make a difference and I've always felt that whichever group of players have been involved with
