This is an interesting innovation. A camera on the head of the player to see what he sees.
Would like to test this out in decision making drills.

Though this picture was taken pre ELVs, it is amazing how much space there is from a scrum.
Where would you attack? Would you use a pre-planned move?
The players have to decide how to react to what the defence does, even if a pre-planned move is called.
Who reacts and who decides? Ultimately the ball carrier makes a decision on whether to run with the ball, kick or pass, but his decision can be heavily influenced by the players around him. His support players need to be telling him where the space is and if they are close enough to support him in that endeavour.
