Course reviews



very help to me understanding more about the modern lock and their roles,


It is difficult followup and understand.(language)If their are English subtitles it will be easy.

The attributes and the skills are well explained by Reuben as the locks are key to the tight phases of the game to provide the backs with good quality ball.

its ok, love to see him doing a bit of hands on coaching.


What I liked was that Reuben was open in the fact that as a lock there is a need to find the comfort zone to give good power in the scrum
