Those of you who read Rugby World may have seen the article regarding this session in the latest issue ( the one with Alex Goode on the cover).
Today (Sunday December 9th) saw the first those 3 sessions that Paul Turner will run with the Academy. As Paul told us this isn't the first time he's been involved with the club, he'd previously run some kicking clinics when he was at Bedford.
This session was with the Colts and U17s, and over 25 players (plus Elliot Fraser from the Wanderers) Â had an almost 2 hr session with Paul which focused on core passing skills and patterns of play. This involved both backs and forwards being able to operate together when the ball "is in country".Paul's enthusiasm shone through on a cold and windy day and he kept the boys moving throughout the session. The gallery gives a sampling of some of the drills the boys took part in.
As always thanks to our sponsors for allowing us to make this happen, thanks from the coaches to the squad members from both age groups who turned out, listened attentively and participated actively.
