All Black Coach Mike Cron returning to IRANZ in February 2018

IRANZ are thrilled to confirm All Black Coach Mike Cron will return to IRANZ in February.

The man famously dubbed “The Scrum Doctor” has made a number of appearances at IRANZ over the years, recognised as one of the most coveted forwards and technical coaches in the game.

His last appearance was on the High Performance Players, and High Performance Coaches Course programmes in February 2017. He will return to coach on the same courses in February next month.

In 2017, Cron worked extensively with the forwards and coaches in the scrum area. The below video shows a basic drill he uses to develop scrummaging strength –

Dexter Faamoana, one of the players seen demonstrating the drill in the video above, attended the High Performance Players Course after playing club rugby for Auckland University RFC and age-grade representative rugby for Auckland. Later that year, he made his debut for Auckland’s Mitre10 Cup side.
