Impi to hire player mentors

2013-10-24 00:00

THE University of KZN Rugby Club is not letting the lush grass on the rugby stadium pitches on the Durban and Pietermaritzburg campuses grow under the feet as they prepare for the new season of their flagship team, the UKZN Impi, whose 2014 Varsity Shield campaign kicks off on January 27.

There are no fewer than seven coaching, medical and managerial positions in the offing, from forwards coach (focus on building pressure on the opposition); lineouts and re-starts coach; backline coach; skills coach and analyst (focus on opposition threats, weekly analysis and specific skills cultivation); defensive coach (alignment, spacing and effectiveness of tackle and assist); a registered team bio­kineticist (player rehab); to a team manager (for the Varsity Shield and Premier League campaigns). publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
