Re: Perfectly Safe isn't perfectly ineffective

John - We have had lads progress to county, divisional and national level. When I said future practices will be that way I was referring to sessions with novices. Obviously as they progress up the...

Re: Perfectly Safe isn't perfectly ineffective

No I have not said that but you can teach novices and have no injuries. This is not theoretical it is what I have seen over the past 6 years and will see again this Sunday morning.

Re: Perfectly Safe isn't perfectly ineffective

I'd argue you would have far more than 2 to 3 out if you were taking novices through highly intense training sessions before they had any technique grounding and within 20 minutes of the first game...

Re: Perfectly Safe isn't perfectly ineffective

Because the original statement was "perfectly safe is perfectly ineffective" which I disagree with. I think safe is not ineffective therefore perfectly safe is not perfectly ineffective. Perfectly...

Re: Perfectly Safe isn't perfectly ineffective

Andrew I certainly do make all my points with due respect. I have no idea what your exposure to rugby is and you may have many different experiences from me which I am always willing to listen and...

Re: Perfectly Safe isn't perfectly ineffective

Re: Perfectly Safe isn't perfectly ineffective

Not at all I just disagree with the idea that safe is not effective. Also to point out that teaching novices is/should not be pushing to the edge so you should not expect injuries.

Re: Perfectly Safe isn't perfectly ineffective

This is what I am getting at - rugby is coached and played the way it is because the safe techniques are the most effective so safe does not mean ineffective.

Sessions run with safety as the focus...

Re: Perfectly Safe isn't perfectly ineffective

This is exactly the type of statement I am disputing. With all due respect that statement displays how little you know about the sport and the coaching process. It is very rare for novices to be...

Re: Perfectly Safe isn't perfectly ineffective

Re: Perfectly Safe isn't perfectly ineffective

Not when you are teaching novices though. The coach controls the session so that you can learn safely without getting injured until you have mastered the skill so that it can be repeated without...

Re: Perfectly Safe isn't perfectly ineffective

I don't think it says that. It says if you are a novice you can expect a reasonable chance you will get injured with no mention of learning technique properly or progressions to allow them to learn...
