Knowledge Is Power

By

Hi there

Following on from my last post, I wanted to explain how and where I’m going to get my information from. I retired from professional Rugby League at the age of 36 and was lucky enough to play for some of the top Super League Clubs in the UK. I also represented GB on the Oceana tour in 1996 to Papua New Guinnea, Fiji and New Zealand. I also picked up 6 caps for Ireland and played 1/2 season for the French Champions Villeneuve in 1997.

I don’t say this to beat on my chest but to show that I’ve been involved in professional Rugby League for the biggest part of my life and I’ve had the privilige of being coached by some of the elite coaches on the planet.

Over the years I’ve been taught the basics of rubgy and how to implement them and I would like to share this knowledge with as many amateur coaches as is physically possible and I have approached two ex-professionals to help me with this quest.

The first person I asked was my ex team mate Harvey Howard who has also palyed at the highest level in both England and Australia which culminated in a Grand Final Win with the Brisbane Broncos. Harvey has also represented Great Britain.He is currently the Coaching & Development Manager in NSW and is at the fore front of rugby development in Australia.

The second person I asked to come on board is David Griffiths. ‘Griff’ has provided kicking coaching and tactical advice to rugby coaches and players over the last 8 years in both Great Britain and Australia.

He is the current Director of Rugby League Germany and is responsible for our recent coaching trip to Nuremberg with the German National squad. He is also Head of Physical Education at Mount St Mary’s College which is where the Rugby Football League hold their coaching development courses.

Griff teaches three main strands to kicking,

  • Kick to land not to hand
  • Kick to the gulls
  • Percentage Goal Kicking is Successful Goal Kicking

Utilising these three strands David Griffiths provides the leading edge in Rugby kicking development aiding all kickers on the performance pyramid.

‘Knowledge Is Power’ as they say and I think we have the foundation to provide an essential rugby coaching resource:)

Be Well
