We want to offer an opportunity for those attending to choose a session they feel would specifically work on a weakness. The actual sessions available will depend on numbers and uptake. Please indicate a 1st and 2nd choice from this list below and what aspect(s) you would like support with and we’ll endeavour to meet these needs, e.g. Lineout Positioning and how to spot infringements. Please feel free to suggest thing not on the list but remember that ‘we can’t please all of the people all of the time’!
Suggested Sessions: Lineout, Tackle, Scrum, Ruck, Maul

4. Fitness Testing
As mentioned at the last Conference, we’re starting the process of reintroducing fitness testing.
Keeping it ‘low tech’ this year, there will be a voluntary opportunity to do a
2.4 km (1.5 mile) track run, a ‘Cooper’s Test’.
NB Results from this are only indicative and will not be used to decide appointments.

Please indicate whether you intend to give it a go.
