Youth teams have once in a lifetime coaching

Big thank you to our U18's coach Stephen Lamb who organised a one in a lifetime opportunity to be coached by Ulster, Ireland and British Lions.  Rory Best, Ian Henderson and Jacob Stockdale took a coaching session with U14, U16 and U18's at Instonians RFC.

Rory concentrated on quick, accurate, tight passing with variations in running lines.

Ian was stressing the importance of peripheral vision and not only focusing on the ball but the game that is happening around you.

Jacob concentrated on catching the highball and of course, what is becoming his signature chip and chase!

Afterwards the players stayed for questions , posed for photos and signed shirts.  What a credit these professionals are and showed the great spirit of rugby is alive in Ulster.  The players throughly enjoyed their session and will be looking to put their practice into play in the future.  A great evening that brought all youth teams together.  Rickity.
