With the unusual cool weather being experienced in South East Asia, and most people shying away from the wet weather, Singapore hosted the start of the 2018 World Rugby Asia Rugby L3 coaching courses.
Daryyl Suasua (World Rugby Trainer from New Zealand) was in town to conduct the course which saw 5 coaches from Singapore and Malaysia attending over 3 days.
Insights on developing patterns of play and drilling down the details to ever changing functional roles in the game and alignment with rugby principles were the norm for 3 full days.
Building on the video analysis component of the L3 course, Bedok Kings RFC’s(Singapore) kindly allowed the L3 participants to run technical coaching sessions for their players.
The sessions were positively received by both players and club management. The L3 course participants enjoyed the opportunity to put their new found skills to the test, and Suasua finished the evening with an inspiring guest coaching session for the Bedok Kings Premiership side working on their attack shapes, and helping them develop their patterns of play.
Suasua will continue on to Dubai to run another L3 coaching course for 17 participants (from UAE & Sri Lanka) and also 2 Sevens coaching workshops before heading to Hong Kong for the final L3 coaching course (11 participants from Hong Kong & Philippines) to wrap up his Asian tour.
