Forty seconds to change a player by David Clarke

If you had forty seconds with any player, what would you do to make them a better player?

Well, it does depend on so many factors, like how much you know the player.

But let’s say you have never met him or her before. You know the standard of rugby they play and what position they are.

Would it be a tactical, technical or conditioning thought?

I think that I would use none of the above. Instead I would work on giving them a method of thinking about their own game and how they approach it. It could help them build on something they have already, or something they might consider anew.

I would ask one quick question and then give my reply based on that answer.

As the week unfolds I will say more about this.

In forty seconds you can achieve nearly nothing useful. The longer the work is, the more you get out of it.
