Skills Challenges

Log on to our Club Community Rugby Officer Dylan Quinn’s Twitter page for weekly skills challenges from Dylan and other Leinster CCRO’s.

It is tough for everyone not being able to train but now is the time to work on your skills especially something you have always wanted to work on as hopefully come September rugby will be back in full swing.

Why not contact your coach and ask him to help you plan a training strategy which you can do from you own home?

Training

All collective training is currently suspended in line with Government and IRFU guidelines.

At the moment, there is no date for a resumption of activities but needless to say we will be ready and willing as soon as we are allowed to do so.

It is possible that a Rugby 7s programme will take place during the Summer to allow players to get back playing rugby. Rugby 7’s on faster harder pitches is normally a great spectacle.

We would urge all our players and members to keep active during this time.

The IRFU are currently running a series of free webinars for players and coaches, which can be accessed at the following link

Why not keep your rugby brain ticking and sign up for the workshops?
