Chris Stirling is over from New Zealand this week for stage two of the plan to aid the professional coaching development of Gavin Cattle & Alan Paver.
Stage 1, saw Gavin & Alan spend 10 days with Chris - our former High Performance Manager - in the Hurricanes Super Rugby environment, to observe and gather information from a professional rugby club in New Zealand.
Now into stage 2, Chris is here to observe the practical application of the information and detail gathered in stage one, and provide both Gavin and Alan an opportunity to gain a clear understanding of where they are at currently as coaches.
From what he has seen so far Chris said: “The technical and tactical detail learned in NZ has been adapted to suit the Pirates game plan, this is a credit to the coaching staff and is an example of their current talent and also their huge potential”
“It is very early in the process but it is clear to see that in the rugby space the Pirates club has a very exciting future.”
