Best thing about coaching rugby is… To me, the best thing about coaching is the satisfaction of seeing players develop not only on the field but also as a person through the values that rugby imparts to them. Nothing beats seeing the smiles on players’ faces when they enjoy themselves on the field.
What I tell my players… Don’t be afraid of making mistakes and back each other throughout the game. You will play your best when you are enjoying yourself.
