Dan Carter on how to deal with nerves and nervousness before fights
"Positive Self Talk to ensure they are thinking correctly and not making themselves nervous, ratio breathing routines (deep breath in over 4 seconds, exhale for 6 seconds) to lower physical activation if feeling overly nervous in their body! Nerves are natural, it means you're ready to face a challenge and perform, but don't let them make you think negatively or feel out of control physically, that is when performance levels can drop!"
