Guns are never good decision little bit flat taking you back up just quickly follows any time we're taking on the back hip I reckon 9 times out of 10. It's could support were too flat the one time out of ten support past. Let's make sure we're catching every night in front. Okay, keep off our back hip find ourselves notes or situations a lot where you get three or four back together targeting sort of numbers down defense or defense come from different angles and we talked about putting angle changes on it and trying to give the Defender as many decisions staff to make it the same time as possible. So it's a case of getting back to that putting both of the hands and doing all that place. Let's go Yeah could great Wildlife. Well done. Yeah could not carry much better. Konzo plenty of time between make sure we referee well because straight lines well then well that last one of this hand. Yeah. Okay flip the cones, of course the other side ports. I was pretty happy the accuracy this morning on the whole was generally pretty good but it's key to everything so passes landing on people's on the on people's hips, you know for starters normally as the guy who's to the guy who's catching balls to Flat rather than being a bad pass and obviously that's too low. Anyway, you know, we talked about getting the ball up at shoulder height and and out in front and accuracy is key to being able to execute everything. Guy really good thing that go TC until you've just done talk about double pumping it right. So if you got enough time for our last Defender the throwing an early dummy see what the defendant does that he'll commit either way. Okay. So if you've got to time this guy in this third Channel and get that first one away see what the Defenders doing then make a decision on the back of it. That's situations. Got to go through hands while not good hands. Yeah, Chris, just two more two more guys that yeah, nice cones. Oh, well, then one last one last one. Good decisions really well done good start for those customers better planned. You are more organized. You are the better session of being the less less chance the guys have of catching you out. I think as long as you stick the principal at any point in your session, somebody should ask you why you why they're doing something you should be able to tell them if you can't can't give them an answer. You probably shouldn't be doing it.
