Your club needs YOU!

Sam Fulling is now officially asking for volunteers to take part in a vRugby project. It may sound a bit daunting, but there is loads of support available. YOU get to choose the project, which can be matched to YOUR club's needs. As well as the satisfaction that would come from taking part in vRugby you'll also get great experience that will be invaluable in anything from a GCSE PE course to a UCAS application or a CV.

If you are interested, or even just want to know more, then let me, Wonky or Mike know - or drop Sam Fulling a line ( But be quick about it - the offer is only open to a limited number of clubs, and if Letchworth don't put forward other clubs will.

On a related subject some recent men's rugby internationals have hinted at the vaguest possibility that the colonials may know a thing or two about how to play the game. Yesterday I passed on some links to some of their training videos, and as a result Dave Roberts, ex-Letchworth coach and now coach of the county's boys' teams, has provided me with links to an even more comprehensive library of training drills and tips.

The ARFU's Library of Drills includes clear videos on all aspects of play. Its divided up by age band, but really the categories reflect the relative experience of players, so the age "7-8 drills" would be suitable for complete beginners of any age. Also many of players demonstrating the "younger" videos are girls. 

If you are involved in any coaching (as part of vRugby, or a GCSE PE course, or supporting your school team) this could be an invaluable resource (its certainly better organised website than anything from the RFU).
