Game - Defence Touch

Another conditioned game that will test your players' fitness. This requires all defenders to perform a 'down-up' after each touch, before re-aligning. As players become tired, more gaps will appear, testing the defence even more.

Good school, it's really important to be strict on the conditions for everything. You do personally the techniques that the coach is asking for those conditions that you set are absolutely crucial in the actual personal development of each player. So if we're asking players to do a long place and it's really important to do a long place if you're asking them to do a leg drive if you're asking them to Leach to do some tackling or to compete for the ball. It's really important. They get those technical competencies. Absolutely, right? Otherwise, what happens is that that those conditions become a bit of a mess. They're not done properly and the players lose their disciplines if you have those disciplines or sloppy disciplines, all that will happen is you get to Saturday and the same things will then happen again on a Saturday and you'll find that the disciplines and standards of your team are actually based on the conditions and disciplines of how you train.
