IRB launch coaching resource

Building on Rugby Ready, the IRB have launched a new online coaching database - IRB Coaching. The database appears mainly aimed itself at junior rugby, and is at its core the same as the Sportplan system on the RFU Community Rugby website. 

As with the RFU system, though the website boasts over 300 drills and videos, free access is given to only 20 per month and you are encouraged to pay for more. However, 20 drills should be enough for a few weeks of coaching sessions (and if you needs more, then simply resubscribe via a new email address!). The IRB system also give access to similar resource collections on "Agility and Fitness" and "Workout" which making the website of interest to players as well as coaches. 

However, the IRB system also has a range of other free information and guidance, including a six stage programme to introduce new players to the game, free drills and videos on key skills, an a forum to seek and exchange ideas and advice with other coaches around the world.

Remarkably some of the videos even include the odd female demonstrating some techniques, though no girls older than about 10 and none featuring any form of contact - once you get into the "serious" stuff its pretty much male only by the looks of things!
