MRFC 2015 CPD Course 1 – Scrum Ready

Former Welsh International prop forward, Peter Rogers, took a Scrum Ready Course with Monmouth Coaches on the 19th November 2015. The course covered the rudimentaries of body positioning in the scrum and during other aspects of play and was very well received by the Coaches that attended – pictures below.

We hope to work with Peter again over the course of this season and in the future.
