I think ultimately the skills we look for his ability to catch pass running tackle. I think once it could take some rugby. It's important then that they work on all areas of the game and as they get all the different things will start to become important board meets the basic core skills of catch pass one attack within do that. They can become a little bit player that's finished attack off with getting in a good position over the ball go get up get up get up good position will be Basics building up into more complex stuff. Probably sales of players get older. Well cost robot. Can you fix Trail? All the good just seen the tackler tackles never finished that was working trip. I'm going to see one else said over. Great. Well, uh, oh well done. Well done. Don't run before you can walk, you know, and that's the kind of bit of the basic thing. We're looking for good stuff. Well done. Well done. Well done. Good. Excellent. Good job for Keys field haven't changed. The game hasn't changed. The physicality is changed. So that's key for the modern game, but the fundamentals of the game will never change. It's catch its kick. It's past its doing your Basics. Yeah that game sends thing against very important somebody that sees things isn't totally fixed upon the ball try and judge the paste in the number of bounces. You want to point the ball. So if I'm going to say it did you buy two and I can get it to bounce twice before it kicks up to July. That's a point to me. So I'm going to say to all right. The skills and the techniques are the things that we should hopefully be able to help them with if they've got the basic coordination athleticism. Then it's up to us as coaches to give them all those bits onto that thing. We will be on there's a lot of my new areas of the game where a lot of technique and around them which sometimes we Overlook where I need to put a lot of focus on them pick up ideas from them from the academies. We also watch all the teams. So it's drills from a plane experiences, but also from elite players and why not share them with an else what you thinking Straight I'm thinking feet straight away. What are your feet doing happy with your feet? Yep, good next job. If you are going to practice make sure you practicing the same things taught routines therefore. So when you're tired when you you're not thinking clearly it's just natural for you to get the ball put your hands in the right place for the ball to be straight. Lucky Tom lookie, we develop per individual skills. So, you know passing catching decision making as much as possible just having that rub the sense but more more about dexterity and being comfortable on the ball. Really you can you see it. What we're looking for is good athletes who have great and hand-eye coordination and then we can build into that the sort of rugby sense stuff along the way.
