Phil John - Pre-season Positives

With his boots now hung up, RGC Assistant Coach Phil John is now focusing on pre-season from a different perspective – “I never minded pre-season as a player, and really it is all about improving the physical aspects of a player. The skill work we do is all done under fatigue which we take into the games when they start.  We have had a few months not having to focus on games and not looking at what other teams are doing, so we have looked to push the boys a lot harder with the conditioning.”

“When I first spoke to Mark at the start of last season we talked about adding that experience and guidance to the players. Over the years I have gained the knowledge, and sometimes it is the small changes that determine how you play. Credit to all the players as they have bought into all the changes and I think that showed in the results.  We were dominating the game upfront and scoring some tries from the line-out and driving mauls.”
