Samoan rugby needs to develop local coaches

Dear Editor,

Good to see that S.R.U’s chief has some great plans for Samoan rugby.

But they need to also develop better local coaches at all levels. 

The S.R.U needs to enforce a strict and compulsory training programmes for all coaches at the youth level up to high school, especially in the forwards. 

World Rugby would be happy to assist with this.  I feel our young players will learn bad habits and bad attitudes from untrained coaches. Nothing super complicated. 

All you need is for the coaches to do a safe techniques and laws of rugby training every year.

 Make it compulsory for every single coach to attend one of these courses before their season starts. 

It will be good for our coaches as well because those who want to coach at a higher level can get the training.
