Really good Explained clearly
Guy McKim Canada
Great progression , based on meeting the needs of the learners using a ‘games’ approach with good examples of checking for understanding while they play. Lovely to watch, look forward to doing with my players.
Jason Dennis Australia
This is fantastic. I’m an AFL player coaching my sons rugby team – this will be invaluable
Shaun Sheppard England
Love the site and the content! I’m a bit concerned that the driving maul from a lineout videos (Parts 18 & 19 of Starter coach) are showing a set up which is illegal. Principally the set up has the two lifters getting into a position in front of the ball and effectively obstructing. My U18 side was penalised for just this set up several times towards the end of last season. Don’t get me wrong I would like to set this way every game, if the ref will allow it, but I do think that the coaching needs to inform what the laws say, especially at this basic level. Happy to be proved wrong on this point of law…

Great coaching. The players enjoyed the session. Getting them involved through questioning was great. From: Henry Adams(World Rugby Coaching Educator.
Roger C Croft France
I thought it was good, I shall use Ben,s, evasion drill but adapt it a little; to include an off load if the player is tackled by the defender on his knees.
Guillermo Ledesma Argentina
Excellent!!! an easy drill and optimal result….congratulations Ben
