Nice learning content. thanks Dave

South Africa

I love the simplicity and clarity of the calls also the passing fix by dropping the body height


Great lesson from Dave. I think it could be improved if you have more mics (on the players) to hear clearly when they shout the code (salt/ Tui/ punch/ bang)


well done

Very helpful

Great Britain & Northern Ireland

This is excellent stuff but what was really telling for me was the comment Dave made in the 2nd video. He mentioned getting the Catch / Pass skills right. If you dont have these basic skill levels this will not work. A real eye opener for backs (and forwards).


Incredible video and instruction from Dave plus the Drone angles show it even better. No wonder the Kiwis are so good as the coaching and details are amazing. The running lines series are perfect for me as a coach thank you so much.


This is really excellent.
