Munster Rugby recently hosted a third consecutive stage two and three coaching clinic for Old Crescent RFC and Crescent College Comprehensive coaches.

In total, 15 coaches attended the evening as well as 25 players from the Old Crescent U-18 side, who participated in the session coordinated by Munster coaching officers Andy Brace and Fiach O'Loughlin.

The clinic began with a recap of the two previous clinics which were delivered just before and after Christmas.

The facilitators looked at 'The Life of the Ball Group' and 'Continuity in Contact and Breakdown' areas.

This session showed an introduction to 'The Early and Late Groups' which focused on players' movement, positioning and repositioning in attack and defence with a view to exploiting space.

Munster would like to thank Eugene McGovern – of Old Crescent RFC and the Crescent College forwards coach – as well as Tony Trehy of Crescent College for their help in organising the clinic.
