Today were launching a series of Smarter Rugby coaching videos here on Rugbydump that in conjunction with ASICS and Sir Ian McGeechan, will help you become a better rugby player, whatever level youre at. As well as the videos, there are fantastic prizes up for grabs.
McGeechan brings a huge depth of knowledge gained over years of experience, having coached the British & Irish Lions on incredible four occasions.
Hes sharing his thoughts through these videos that centre around three core principles:
Intelligence: an intelligent approach to the game, how you play, train and prepare;
Commitment: determined, hard working, willing to put in the extra work and always sporting;
Excellence: to be the best you can.
A total of 20 videos will be available through Rugbydump over the course of the next month, as well as great promotions to win signed items, kit and training sessions with McGeechan himself to be found on the ASICS website.
Along with McGeechan, other ambassadors such as Joe Worsley, Euan Murray, and Stephen Ferris will be involved in taking you through rugby drills that focus on the basics right through to more advanced techniques.
"Rugby is a game for all that combines simple elements to produce a beautiful game. The game needs intelligent players who are committed to excellence and I am delighted to be working with ASICS who embody these qualities.
"I very much look forward to a long relationship where in our own small way we help contribute to the next generation of Smarter Rugby players," said McGeechan.
In this first video, the focus is on line speed and methods employed to apply pressure on the attacking side. Well have another video coming up shortly.
By learning how to become a Smarter Player and wearing the ASICS Smarter Boot, you can play Smarter Rugby with Sir Ian McGeechan.
