Blues coaches definitely hooked on throwing

7th December 2012

Another successful Blues Coaching Clinic was delivered last week at Cyfarthfa High School in Merthyr

Over 30 coaches, who all brought a player to work with enjoyed learning the techniques of how to throw the ball into a lineout.

The event which was called Hooked on Throwing developed the coaches understanding of the principles of the throw in and how to use these principles with a child centred approach.

The evening was delivered by WRU and Blues Player Development Officer Duane Goodfield and assisted by Blues hooker Kristian Dacey.

Terry Gee of Rumney RFC who attended the evening said of the event “ Both myself and my player thought the evening was hugely beneficial, I really enjoyed how the session was broken down in to simple key points which I can use back at my club with the other hookers.”

Finally Jon Evans WRU and Blues Coach Development Officer stated “Thanks for all those coaches and Players who attended the event, hope that you were able to take some of the information that Duane presented so expertly and hope to see you all on the next one in the New Year. Please could I also express my gratitude to Cyfarthfa High School for the use of their facilities.”
