Albury co-coach Luke Daly can't say he's ever been laughed at while delivering a pre-match address.
With football on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a host of Tigers players provided a social media update how they're coping with isolation during these unprecedented times.
Daly brought his role as coach to the household, revving up his two sons prior to Albury's season opener against Wodonga Raiders.
They struggled to keep a straight face for too long.

"They didn't think I was too serious," Daly laughed.
"At the moment they think every day is a holiday because mum and dad are home every night.
"The boys make me do footy training every night with them and we take turns in who's the coach.
"They like to be the coach and tell me what to do most of the time.
"I don't think I would have gone that lightly if the playing group were laughing at me (laughs).
"There would have probably been a few 400s at training on Tuesday night if I had have got that response.
"We just wanted to do something that was lighthearted and a bit of fun that we could get out to everyone."
Meanwhile, Albury's arch rival Yarrawonga had some fun of its own with veteran Xavier Leslie, who would have played his 300th game on Easter Sunday against Wodonga Raiders at Mulwala's Lonsdale Reserve.
His family combined to try to create what the moment may have looked like.
Leslie was filmed by wife, Kylie, leaving his front door in his football gear with his three children cheering from the front yard.
Similar to Daly, he then delivered a pre-game message highlighting the roles he wanted each of them to play on the day.
The video well and truly went viral.
"I definitely wasn't expecting the response, we thought it would have been a few friends that saw it and had a laugh," Leslie said.
"I can't believe the amount of people that texted or commented that they appreciated something like that.
"Kylie was twisting my arm to do it and I reluctantly gave in and she just filmed it on her phone.
"I had no idea what I was going to do. I got to the door and thought I'd come up with some rubbish.
"It certainly amused the kids anyway, especially our oldest daughter (Lily). She doesn't stop talking about it, she thinks she's a celebrity now (laughs).
"There was a banner that the kids had that was either for the record-breaking game I played or the 250th. Lily ended up doing it up and forgot to take it down to the ground on the day, so she thought it would be a good idea to use that.
"You start to see a bit more of this now on social media which is good and provides a bit of a distraction."
