Welcome to the Rugby Coach Weekly...Haunted House, featuring:

Bruce Aitchison, housemaster at Merchiston Castle School, Level 3 coach, former coach at cup winning Boroughmuir, played and coached across the globe. Creator of Happiness is Egg Shaped.

Geraint Davies, Head of PE and Games at Leicester Grammar School, Head Coach at Nuneaton RFC, a coach with Gloucester Academy and a Senior Coach Developer and Level 3 mentor, video analysis guru on Twitter and YouTube.

Phil Llewelyn, just back from coaching in Canada, former Player Development Officer with England Rugby and Talent Developer with Ireland Rugby and a former national league head coach with Hinckley RFC.

These three unsuspecting coaches were invited to enter the Haunted House. I lead each one into a room where they faced a terrifying rugby scenario. Each one was challenged to find a coaching solution. On the spot, no preparation and no get out clauses. Sink or swim.

The other two coaches listened on, and at the end of the solution offered alternative views. We then commented on those solutions, before we went off to the next room.
