Briggs: Concepts Taught to Children at Earlier Age will Benefit As They Grow

Concepts taught at an earlier age will benefit players as they grow in the game.

This was the message instilled in young players during their rugby training session yesterday by Sport Teacher, Andrew Briggs.

The Englishman, a PE teacher by profession was out and about with a group of fifty boys, braving the afternoon heat, preparing for a new year in rugby.

In 2015 Papua New Guinea was recognized by world rugby as the country with the highest number of participants in rugby union in the Pacific.

And through their ‘get into rugby’ program, the PNGRFU has pushed over the years, for participation by schools in the country.

Budding players at the Port Moresby International School, braved the capital sun, as a more physical approach to the game was introduced.

Andrew Briggs, Sport instructor at the school, says the impact on teaching kids at a younger age, will benefit the players in the long run.

The ‘Get into rugby’ program is a curriculum-based program introduced by World Rugby to maximise the number of participants in the code, from players to coaches and referees.
