EXPERT SESSIONS AND ADVICE FROM QUALIFIED AND EXPERIENCED GRASSROOTS RUGBY COACHES

Sevens as training, useful jargon, breadth or depth


Dan Cottrell finally corals the RCW Round-Up Rodeo host Phil Llewellyn into his own round-up as they delve into the detail of Phil’s thoughts on coaching. After interviewing over 40 coaches in the last three months for his show, it was time to put Phil into the hot seat.

They explore:

  • Can sevens training and tournaments work for all levels and types of player
  • How “jargon” can be used effectively, and made relevant
  • The pros and cons of ex-players moving straight into coaching
  • What is meant by “exciting” rugby to watch
  • Should a coach know a lot about a little or a little about a lot

Phil has worked in Player Development for both England and Ireland Rugby and is a former national league head coach with Hinckley RFC. He has recently returned from coaching and coach development work in Canada. This season, amongst other things, he will be studying for a Masters in Sports Coaching and coaching the Oxford University Women’s team.
