30 Min Q&A With Elite Rugby Coach


ScreenshotNobleVideoOver the last 12 months I’ve been asking amateur rugby coaches what questions they would ask an Elite Rugby Coach if they got to spend 30 minutes with them and I received questions from 4,322 coaches….which took me a while to go through:-)

Anyhow I grouped all the questions that were similar and wrote down the top 20/30. I then asked Ex GB and current Wigan Warriors Head Coach Brian Noble if he would answer these questions from amateur coaches from both codes.

I’m really pleased that he agreed and I videoed our Q&A session.

Now for those that don’t know Brian, he’s one of the most respected rugby league coaches in the world and has won every domestic honour in the English game whilst coaching the Bradford Bulls a few years ago. He is also a regular summarizer for Sky TV.

One of the biggest reasons I asked Brian first is, he is a huge advocate of improving core skills which I’m a massive believer in.

Hi Neil bril video with nobby nice to see how the pros handle things

Well done, great idea to do the video Q&A with Nobby and well executed.

Brian talks alot of common sense and probably not surprisingly likes to keep things simple. I learned alot from the 30 mins with some good questions from guys who obviously want to improve their skills and game knowledge.

A big thank you to Brian for taking the time out to do the session and for yourself for making it happen.

Just one question when is the next one??


Best Regards, John


That was a great Q&A, Brian Noble gave really good interesting and informative answers and most importantly common sense, fantastic. Well done Neil

Well done Neil,that was the best interview i have seen in relation to junior coaching at a amateur level. Brian certainly is a practical ideas man and now i can see why he is so succesfull and he has put my mind back in focus of what coaching is all about.
keep up the good work.
