Should we encourage try celebrations? by David Clarke

I am pondering on whether I am a grumpy old rugby coach when I tell off my players for celebrating their tries with whoops and high fives.

Of course, now I remember, I used to do it myself when I scored tries once upon a time . No one told me off then , though I did get a bit of stick and a few funny looks.

My view is that the scores against the opposition should be “celebrated” with respect. Show you are happy, but don’t wind them up too much.

On the other hand if you have been in the papers during the week then you might want to prove a point. I wonder if Shaun Edwards said anything to Danny Cipriani and Josh Lewsey after this celebration?

I doubt anything was said, since it was out of the way of the white teams presence. If done in the try zone, something definately would have been said.
