During the game

Participants will be given the chance to review both teams’ tactics in possession and out of possession, with a focus upon performance. Tactics shall be reviewed around the state of the game: ‘why’ specific tactics shall be used, and what tactics could be implemented. Participants will also have an opportunity to discuss their thoughts around these and shall debate around the comments. 

Post game there shall be discussion with both team managers to review any tactics that may have been implemented, and to delve into their minds around ‘why’ they adopted the specific tactics and how the game may have influenced their decisions.
