Video | Munster Rugby Excellence Camps
5th July 2022 By The Editor
The Munster Rugby Excellence Camps took place over the last two weeks in the University of Limerick and MTU Cork.
The camps offered a premium rugby experience for children aged 13-16 and players took part in a week-long structured rugby development programme which included core skill development, game understanding, position-specific training, appropriate strength and conditioning training and teamwork.
100 players took part across the two camps in Limerick and Cork.
Head of Rugby Development Colm McMahon said:
“We have a four cornerstones programme which is catch-pass, ball carry, breakdown and tackle and we see them as the four main elements of the game so we want to give the players the opportunity to get really good at those skills.
“We have a menu of cues that we promote to the players to try and build good habits. Again, they are the cornerstones of the game which is how we seem them and we want to try to promote them for the players to get their development going.”
McMahon also gave a presentation to the players in attendance on the Munster Rugby Player Pathway, one of the many education modules which were delivered throughout the week.
