Training tips and techniques

I've discovered a series of interesting short videos from Australia illustrating various practices and coaching drills. Many of them are for small groups - the half-back/scrum-half race (video 6) only needs four, for example. Worth looking at...

I've also come across another series of rather more introductory videos which are worth looking at because - almost uniquely I think - all 12 feature only women coaches and players. They are the work of a player/coach - Miriam Richmond - from Montana in the USA. They are a bit basic and have to confess that Miriam's accent does get to me after a while, but as a means of demonstrating basic rugby moves to new or potential players (at school, for example) they are valuable if for no other reason than there are no men in them.
