|Stephen Jones talks kicking tactics|
|Around the Academy:
My name's Stephen Jones and I play for Wales and French club Clermont Auvergne.
As an outside-half, kicking is an important part of my game.
A good kick can create a try-scoring opportunity - or help get your team out of trouble.
The secret is knowing when to kick and where to kick.
You've got to be able to kick at the right time and to the right place.
Most of the time it's instinctive. You react to what's happening on the pitch - and that's something that comes with experience.
There are lots of different types of kick you can use. Which one you choose will depend on what's going on around you.
Always be aware of your team-mates and keep an eye on the opposition too - especially the full-back and wingers.
Identify weaknesses in their defence and be ready to react if you catch them out of position.
Other factors such as the weather, the scoreline and how much time there is left will also come into play.
Remember the more kicks you can master, the more tricks you have up your sleeve.
Put in plenty of practice because it's important for kicks to be accurate. A poor kick will just gift the ball to the other team.
