Youth Development in Rugby with Russell Earnshaw

This video is shared by Player Development Project.

This interview features former England U18 Rugby Coach and International 7’s player, Russell Earnshaw.

Player Development Project Editor, Dave Wright dives into a conversation with Russell on the types of environments England rugby is looking to create in order to develop sustainable success.

Russell shares his own experiences both as a player and coach, talking about the importance of player ownership, decision making and chaos. Russell is also the Co-Founder of The Magic Academy and is a top coach developer.

This is a fantastic conversation in which coaches across all codes can tap into the knowledge of a man driving standards in England’s youth rugby ranks.
