" THE WHY? "
So why, why do I do this?
Throughout my 20 years of Rugby, 15 of those being a Professional Rugby player, I have witness so many different countries, environments, cultures, races, attitudes, prospectives, beliefs, mindsets, habits & people.
In my journeys regardless of where I am in the world, e.g Africa shanty towns or New Zealand high performance program, 2 things remains the same. "Rugby integrity & Rugby Values".
I have witness first hand the positive change these 2 words can bring into an individuals live regardless of what status.
I truly believe that rugby is more than throwing a ball around & winning championships, it's a #lifechanging experience that when coached with the right mindset, values & integrity, it starts to change an individual internally & in doing so, it becomes infectious, it will take hold over your team, & as individuals start to get better, others will notice, not only in the squad but also at home, in the community, other teams will start to notice.
There is a side of Rugby a lot of people don't understand & my purpose for the YOUBELONGRUGBY program is to help develop & progress their skills as well as the mindset, showing people that it's more that just physical.
In my experiences as a player & coach, having values & integrity is a long lasting attribute that never goes unnoticed & never forgotten.
