Course reviews

Brilliant. The use of the blocks as learning aids is quite effective compared to a PowerPoint. You’re engaging the players and empowering them to provide options in your attack shape. Well done.


For us, if the hooker is a 1 he stays in that channel after the line out vs sprinting to the opposite side. Our expectation is, the backline supports the first breakdown and then 1 3 3 1 form is completed at the second or third phase.


The importance of decision making and communication of the first five eight to let the pods know where they have to position themselves.

South Africa

I believe its highly unrealistic to ask hooker to sprint to opposite side of pitch from line out . Most of time there is no connected back on the shapes
