Known for his innovation and ability to deliver this information to players and coaches, there is so much to be learnt from his insight.

Colin Cooper

Coops vast wealth of knowledge in Rugby has been forged over a 40-year long career as both a player and coach.

“The course has been really unbelievable. I walk away from here a much better coach. I’ve benefited much more (from this course) than ever in my wildest dreams I could have hoped for.”
