Course reviews

Terrific! Extremely helpful, to one who knew nothing of lineout technique or strategy before this.

USA

Muy Bueno!!!

Argentina

Very well done. Simple and effective.

USA

Really good video, Victor has been one of the best lineout forwards in world rugby for a long time and you can see why from the very simple but effective lineout technique he demonstrates in the video!

Wales

Victor Matfield and Bismark du Plessis videos making it simple doing the basics well, no complications, brilliant.

France

Great technique reinforcing that doing the basics gets the job done.Thanks a very helpful video.

New Zealand

Great video, really simple. I like how Victor allows the boys to do it there way and then adjusts their technique. Too often there is no dialogue between the coach and player.

Ireland

Easy to understand..is there any more lineout videos that will be uploaded soon?

New Zealand

Ive worked with Vic in Toulon and great to see he still does the basics simple . great video

France

Technique is key here. Victor runs through the basic mechanical movements and skills needed to run an efficient lineout. Fantastic video.

Great Britain & Northern Ireland

En un ejercicio un jugador invade la zona del line, esto es una accion que algunos referis cobran. In one exercise a players invaided the line zone, this may be an infration.

Argentina

Excellent video, Basic but enough information to improve our lineout.

Australia

It’s just answered some questions about dummy options. Excellent info.

Australia

Great lineout technique in this video. Very clear, very simple.

New Zealand

This is a really great base to build from for lineouts. It really focuses on lineout movement. It would be awesome to see one for coaching the bare basics of throwing and lifting to the advanced ideas for 3 and 5 man lineouts, ect. I’d also really like to see one for building a maul off the lineout. Phenomenal jumping technique training here though…

USA

Great, cannot wait to work through this with my players

Canada

Loved this. Clear and concise instructon.

Canada

Outstanding! Real insight & quality coaching points. A valuable progression would be to see Victor’s principles in a contested session so DM can be critiqued. Thank you!

Australia

Basic but brilliant, simple can’t wait to try it out in the next session

Wales

This video is truly the simplest to comprehend and Victor facilitates the basic principles recommended for technical lineouts…looking forward to the next one.
