Great details, thanks Laurie


So happy to see Laurie with The Rugby Site!!!! been following him forever and still use his rucks drills from 2017, lol!!! So happy to see him with you all!


Simple and to the point makes you think and gets the creative mind working!


I like that he mentions that you need to find out what your outcomes are beforehand. That will determine how you approach your coaching.

I thought it was very useful in that it went through all types scenarios in the break down for each player
