Coaches: Gary Henderosn (RFU), Lynn Evans (Rugby Consulatnt), Harry Boyle (RFU) and Craig Brown (Penguins)
As a follow up to the successful tour in 2005, to play in Malta Rugby Union’s International XVs tournament, and to coaching the local rugby community (HSBC Penguin International Coaching Academy), it was agreed that a follow-up visit would be planned to focus on coach tutoring.
A team of four Penguin coaches spent consecutive weekends in Malta running the standard level 1 rugby union coaches’ course, in a similar manner to those run in Malaysia. Gary Henderson led the course and was joined by Harry Boyle for the weekend, 29th September to 1st October. Lynn Evans and Craig Brown joined Gary for the second weekend, 6th to 8th October.
13 enthusiastic coaches ranging in age from 19 to 60, including two women (the first woman to be coach tutored by the academy), attended the course.
