So what other things we look for in a push pass I could see how do I get any accuracy my push past? Follow-through, so where should I finish with my hands so tape so what I would call that I call that rifles so finish with rifles if you hold the rifle with you on a range yet. Okay, do we change our hands position on the ball for a push past do I need to do that? I need to do that. So it's exactly what we just practiced. Okay, and we push through where am I pushing through from? So in front of on top of the hip and then I'm also rotating. Okay and finish through on the target with what holding my rifle. What do you know? Well if this were hand on a clock, where is this pointing at 12 o'clock? So where's the hand now pointing 6 so 12 to 6 in front of the top of the hip punch through with your rifle? Yeah, go that soda. Mommy how we hold a rugby ball? Across the scene so fingers across the seams and with the letter their curly WK, how do you think might want to catch a ball? So what we would hold our we pretend we were holding a ball 10 points of contact Kylie W's right. So if the ball came to you like this, what would you need to do with your curly W to catch it the way right? So we need to adjust our hands to the middle of the ball. So when the ball comes to adjust your hands familiar bull adjust your hands the middle of booklet. Okay. So reason I take them off their feet, it's just because I actually have to then rotate to pass at the trunk. So we go 12 to 6 in front of the top of the hip and punch through Punch rocket punch very good. Nice. Why is the past going into his back?

I want you to punch it so it shouldn't look loopy should punch it much better than I like your punch, but we what's the problem for you? Just the release of the past yet.
