I don’t need to pay for someone to tell me that I am coaching for the love of the game. I know that I love it or would not be spending the time that I do out there.


To be invited to Wayne’s home on a trip to NZ, to discuss was a an honour. A tribute The his humility, prepared to share his knowledge of the game. Carter.


One of my very first online rugby coaches along with Sir Henry. The wisdom and insight will forever be remembered. Thank you Professor and may you enjoy your well deserved “retirement” as i know that a rugby guru like you will never quit sharing your rugby wisdom.


Thank you for sharing all this knowledge and passion!
