EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

1990s rugby coach education absolutely relevant today

Dan catches up with one of the most experienced coaches and coach educators in rugby, Pete Drewett.

After working with England Rugby since the early 90s, as well as coaching international age-grade (U21s), Pete went on to help build the Exeter Chiefs ready for their ascension into the top league. With stints in high-performance with Hong Kong and Georgia, plus working at the WRU, he is now a World Rugby High Performance consultant developing Kenyan rugby and their ambitions to play in the next World Cup.

Having coached Dan at Exeter University in the late 80s(!), they discuss the following areas:

  • Some of the greats of England Rugby coach education, including Don Rutherford and Chalky White.
  • What’s stayed the same and what’s changed since then in coach education.
  • Using Mosston’s Teaching Styles.
  • How to develop as a coach.
  • The highs and lows of being a professional coach.
  • What makes Rob Baxter, the current Chiefs coach, so good at what he does.

He also runs his own performance consultancy, Perform 2XL. For more information, contact him on peterdrewett@perform2xl.co.uk
