Love what Dave said about growing into the game and his progression of footwork for all, thank you, hope lots coaches see this, simple but useful.

Great drill, little things that determining the momentum of attack. Individual skills, very simple but spot on. Thanks for sharing. This is your everyday thing… love it.

Great session. Hardly ever coached to younger players. Y.A.C will increase enormously if ALL players work on this. This is the best west way to increase ruck speed.
