Penguin coach and qualified World Rugby Educator Dave Cockburn is helping the Pingvin Rugby Club in Trelleborg, Sweden, this season. Dave is assisting Mark Stacey, Head Coach, with the development of the Club's season plan, helping to develop the junior coaches and the playing structures and strategies to be implemented within the Club.
Dave meet Mark and some of the Pingvins at Richmond RFC in early March (as part of the ongoing relationship between the Penguins and Pingvins, as two Pingvin plays are invited annually to play for the Penguins v Oxford University) and has visited Trelleborg once (mid March). Further trips are planned over the next 6 months to cover the playing season in Sweden.
Thanks to Penguin Steve Hill for hosting the Pingvins on their trip to the UK each year. As well as playing in the Oxford University match the Swedes also spend time training at Richmond RFC.
