    “ Following my playing career I wanted to remain in the sport but lacked a pathway into coaching. The Academy has helped me further my rugby career and provided the knowledge, connections, and support I needed."

  • "I support the role IRANZ has in NZ Rugby"
    - Graham Henry

    “ Their programmes are carefully designed to address the all-important areas; physical, technical, tactical and mental. More importantly (the course) creates a high pressure team environment, similar to what they will experience as professional rugby players."
