"From my perspective the Rugby Site is one of the most current and up to date informational rugby websites available. The key guest coaches provide some of the most up to date coaching literature and video but in way that it can be interpreted by all levels of rugby," said Dustin Hopkins, Rugby Canada's Manager of Coach Development. "Their coaching app is a great tool as well as it allows you to take a lot of the information with you when you are on the move."

The Rugby Site is dedicated to helping everyone involved in rugby learn direct from the best players and coaches in the game. Including Graham Henry, Victor Matfield, Brian Ashton, Wayne Smith, Mike Cron, Joe Schmidt, Richie McCaw, Sam Warburton, Dan Carter, Shane Williams, Martin Castrogiovanni, Gregor Townsend, Courtney Lawes and Bismarck du Plessis.

In depth coaching videos provide ideas, activities, drills and processes from each coach or player around how to technically and tactically develop that aspect of play.

The app also features free resources, text and video blogs and comment direct from The Rugby Site's coaches and players. The app is loaded with great features for anyone searching for a competitive advantage and wanting to further develop their coaching skills, team or improve their game as a player. The resource provides in-depth videos fronted by some of the best coaches in the game. It also includes player fronted modules from some of the world's most influential players.

The resource allows you to get extra tips with downloadable companion PDF's, access videos live on the field with your players without having to use your mobile data and provides you with the ability to capture notes in the in-app notes section on the field as it happens.
