Well done, but we go. Okay this time your Sprint to me. Once you get to me, I want you to try and stop along this lines. We Sprint stop on the line go spread on this line and stop on the line top of the line. Yeah, I think guys who needs the coaching. I think you'd benefit anyone really whether it's new coaches experienced coaches or catch is about to come into the game. I think you can learn off every sort of Coach because they one coaching style is different not every coach and not every player. Sorry. I reacted often the same coach. So it's good to have a various wiser knowledge of how different coaches Deliver us a separate session so person like me because I went from having sex. I mean, I know it all it's good to learn off different coaches of all different abilities.
