Local coaches were reminded of the importance of their role during the rugby clinic conducted by the Vodafone Flying Fijians team officials at the Grand Pacific Hotel last night.

Flying Fijians head coach John McKee spoke about the importance of local coaches role towards the development of the sport.

“Fiji Rugby Union and the Flying Fijians decided to run the coaching clinic for local coaches, while we are in camp here.

“This will help coaches along the pathway, it will give them some ideas which they can take back to their schools, clubs and provincial teams,” McKee said.

The one day clinic will assist coaches in the preparation of their teams whether in schools, clubs and provincial teams.

“It’s not so much to give coaches the little coaching manual or play book, but it help coaches to think about how they coach and think about what they do with their players.

“Rugby can be a very complex game and sometimes coaches can step back, the philosophy, how we get the best out of the team, how we coach players, that’s the benefit of this clinic,” he added.

The experience Flying Fijians officials led by McKee spoke on planning a rugby programme, Assistant coach attack Tabai Matson talked about attack plays, Assistant Coach Scrums and Lineout Alan Muir also talked on his area.
