Part 1. Wayne Smith - Mindset of a Champion - Part 1 of 3 10:14 Member content
Wayne Smith “fell into” coaching while playing in Italy after the end of his first-class rugby career in New Zealand. Ten years later he steered the Crusaders to their first (of many) Super Rugby titles. Along the way he absorbed lessons from a wide variety of influential rugby personalities, took notes from Blues coach Graham Henry, and eventually ended up teaching Henry some lessons of his own. In the first of a series of three videos, Wayne lays down the recipe for coaching success. And it starts with learning and sharing.

Hi. None of the videos I’ve tried are working. The Graham Henry positional requirements, the Wayne Smith mindset videos… I click on play video and there is a blank space where the video player should be. I have Adobe Flash player installed on my computer.
