IRANZ General Manager Steve McHardy and Managing Director Murray Mexted discuss the IRANZ Experience.

I learned how to look at things from a different perspective. My players still benefit from what I learned at IRANZ every day. The calibre of the tutors was top shelf, by far the best Coaching Courses on offer anywhere. 


John Eggleton, Coach (St. Pats Silverstream College Coach)

John attended the Advanced Coaches Course in 2015, and went on to win the competition with his 2nd XV side in 2016.

The calibre of coaches was clearly evident and their depth of knowledge really shone through. Callum 100% knows he has become a better player after the Course… he will be back to IRANZ as soon as is practical!

Conrad’s son Callum attended the Intermediate Players Course in 2018
