EasiCoach Rugby Skills Activities contain ready-made, age-appropriate, safe training activities. This U9 and U10 volume develops handling and evasion skills learned at younger age levels and introduces more contact skills. EasiCoach helps coaches and young players understand the basic concepts, whatever the level of experience of the coach or player, and is part of the EasiCoach Rugby Skills Curriculum. If you are new to coaching and not sure what to coach, or even how to coach, help is at hand, even for "non-rugby" volunteers. They are called EasiCoach activities because they are simple and easy to follow. EasiCoach will help you to quickly understand what it is you're trying to achieve and see what you need to do from just a few words and pictures. You can grasp the key do's and don'ts at a glance. The activity sheets tell you the equipment you need (never more than basics), and allow you to cater for more or fewer players at your session. Using EasiCoach helps you to speak to your players with confidence, and in addition, by following all the materials in each manual, your players will be learning the right skills for the right age group every season, because all the activities are part of a curriculum.
England Rugby has every reason to be excited about 2015. As hosts of the IRB Rugby World Cup and blessed with a team that has been getting better and better for the past couple of years, this could be the year that they emulate the 2003 squad and win the Webb Ellis Trophy. The England Rugby Yearbook 2014/15 doesn't just look forward to the RWC, it mainly looks back at the successful year just gone. A narrow loss in the RBS Six Nations Championship - arguably lost in 15 minutes in Paris - was followed by the eye-opening tour to New Zealand, when the World Champions had more than than their hands full against a team some way short of full strength. Then came the QBE Autumn Internationals when the World Cup credentials were strenghtened further. In fact, however, England's men are now merely trying to emulate the World Cup-winning Women's team which triumphed in 2014. This and their Six Nations Triple Crown are featured as are the men's Under-20s, Sevens and Saxons team. All this, plus an exhaustive statistics section, including biographies of the men's and women's players of the year in 2014, and 160 stunning full-colour photographs make The England Rugby Yearbook 2014/15 required reading for every England Rugby fan.
My book, or memoir, is mainly a very light hearted look at my rugby union experiences both on and off the field. My stories began in 1958 when I was 10 and a pupil at George Heriot's school in Edinburgh. As I started to recount my early experiences in rugby union lots of other general boyhood, adolescent and later more adult moments came to mind. Some stories have nothing to do with rugby but I thought they might bring a smile to the faces of some people as they may see themselves in similar circumstances. My Rugby stories include my times at Heriot's School, Heriot's Former Pupils Rugby Club, Nottinghamians RFC, Aberdeenshire RFC and Mackie Academy FPRFC in Stonehaven. I was president of Mackie Academy FPRFC twice and in that period I met many famous International players from all of the then Five Nations as they kindly agreed to speak at the club dinners. They include Scottish stars Andy Irvine, Jim Telfer, Jim Aitken, Iain Milne and his brothers Kenny and David. Fran Cotton of England and Gareth Edwards of Wales also graced the Mackie dinners. Jo Maso the famous French Centre also features in the book as I recount an amazing story involving him and Mackie Academy FP's . I was employed as Secretary and General Manager of Heriot's Rugby Club from 1998 to 2004 and in that time I had the privilege of meeting players from all over the world as they trained with their International colleagues at Heriot's school playing fields, Goldenacre. Towards the end of my tenure at Heriot's I was close to much of the turmoil that beset the Scottish Rugby Union and Scottish club rugby. Heriot's were largely responsible for halting a likely meltdown of the Scottish Rugby Union in 2004/2005 and I tell that story at the end of my book. Rugby kicks of the book and closes it too so I have called my memoir Wrapped in Rugby.
