Saint Tim,

I canít read the article myself, but I believe the gym observation was when training inside due to bad weather, a few round balls were about and the players all started playing football. Chris said back in NZ the players would have used their hands and played basketball. In the NH football is the natural default where in NZ the players natural instincts was to use their hands, hence why handling is better/more natural to SH players.
