Another round of regional league fixtures saw two more fairly easy wins for the team despite using a very different line-up from last weeks. Big matches ahead.
After catching a break on the scheduling front, I was able to run a fairly comprehensive training session with a particular emphasis on reading and movement.
This training was all about working the starting team ahead of an expected match in a couple days, so 6s play was a strong feature. Not a great session, though.
A pair of regional league matches gave me an opportunity to see how certain players have developed and ideas on where to do some more training work.
I put the team through a physically demanding session which brought in some defense and blocking work for the first time in the new term, among other things.
The first training session back after the holiday break had some predictable aspects to it, but was satisfying in several ways as well.
I used the last proper training session of the term to start working on something new and to take notes on particular areas I'll need to have in focus come January.
The second to last training session of the term was a crowded one, but one which provided some scope to raise the intensity and expectations for the team moving on.
