Hope I find you all well, and please find the attached files for this seasons Prop Idol event.
As with other seasons, the 2010/11 Prop Idol is aimed at u13/u14 boys and u15/u18 girls age groups, though titled ‘Prop Idol’ the scheme is open to all players, so you may consider all your forwards and even some of those big chunky centres as we always see as players develop. As we have witnessed, a young u13s player playing his club rugby as a centre can turn into a u16 England loosehead prop!!!
A lot of what is covered/shown in the small Front Row coaching session before the heat competition can relate to body positioning into various contact situations (rucking, mauling and the tackle) – so will be of use to all coaches.
Any questions please let me know, hope to see you and some of our players at one of the heats.
Yours in rugby
