    I have all three Master Coach volumes and use them very much to garner ideas to common challenges with developing and keeping players interested.

    They are all very simple to use and allow for a coach to add their own spin into the training.

    Well done on your Master Coach.

    This is the most comprehensive coaching manual I have seen. Very informative and a sure guide to success.

    Many rugby player futures that will be determined by the sound tactical and coaching advice you are making available.
