James Corden is the coach of Corden's Angels and on his team are the boys of One Direction: Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson. As the team prepares for a brutal dodgeball match against an all-female American team, Ball Busters, James gives them the mandatory locker room pep talk.

"Are you gonna bleed for me, Niall?" James screams at the 21-year-old.

Fast forward to the game, where the Angels sing their anthem (you'll never guess what it is) before the first match starts. Harry takes one in the nuts and Niall gets knocked out before round one goes to the Ball Busters.

Back in the locker room, the Late Late Show host begins to lose his composure, pumping up his team's spirits to win the second round. However, the Ball Busters prove to be tough to beat and go on to win the final round. But that's okay, James still gives the boys a good scrub in the showers afterwards (eek).

It's too bad Zayn Malik lost out on the fun, really.
