Coaches tackle new rugby techniques
Published at 11:40, Thursday, 04 June 2009
FORMER Barrow Raiders boss Paul Crarey demonstrated tackling techniques to over 50 rugby coaches.
Crarey, the newly-appointed Dalton RL coach, held the session at Kelland Park. Coaches from both codes of rugby attended.
They were given an insight into methods used in Australia.
Crarey learnt the techniques when, under the watchful eye of former Australian international and Barrow player/coach Rod Reddy, he visited Parramatta, the Sydney-based NRL team.
“The sessions were mainly about raising the standard of coaching in the area,” said Crarey.
“The modern game is moving so quickly that it’s important for coaches round here to be up to speed.”
It is hoped that the coaches who attended will go back to their respective clubs and introduce the techniques into training sessions.
The next session will be held on Monday at Furness Rugby Union Club. The focus will be on agility and game conditioning.
More sessions are planned, with Hull FC coach Richard Agar set to get involved once the Super League season is over.
l Newly-qualified rugby league officials recently learnt the trade at Barrow Island ARLFC.
The Barrow and District Open Age and Youth Leagues, in association with Barrow Island, held a course which resulted in eight new rugby league officials qualifying.
Rugby Football League Match Official Development Officer for the region Peter Wharton ran the course.
