Your tips and session ideas have really brought some interest back to our rugby training. The players and I now really enjoy our training sessions.

Great site and excellent drills. Easy to understand and apply in training. Thanks for the great drills!

Tyrone Zas, Rugby Coach

What a fantastic tool. I've found a few drills that are unfamiliar, but that's to be expected after playing rugby for 27 years. The Chalk Board and Session tools make an unbelievable difference in both time and organization.
