Rugby Training with the All Blacks

With just 4 games to go for our school rugby season, we had the best possible start by having Brad Mooar and Will Jordan come along to train with us.
Brad Mooar is an All Blacks assistant coach who works on attack and with the backs, he was previously a Crusaders coach too. Will Jordan is a Crusaders star back and is playing his second season for the All Blacks this year. We were incredibly lucky to have Brad and Will come along to training, knowing they are busy with the All Blacks campaign.
It was great to see a fantastic turnout at training, we started with some team-building activities run by Will and moved into a game of 10s where our squad were able to showcase their skills. There were some solid tackles and powerful runs on display - Brad was surely impressed!
We are looking forward to demonstrating some of the skills we learned at training as we go into our final 4 games for the season. 
"It was pretty cool meeting them, I walked straight up to Will Jordan and shook his hand." - Jack
A special thanks to Penny Farrell who gifted us this wonderful opportunity.
