One of the reasons why people enjoy being involved in rugby is the sense of community it offers. Rugby teams are often tight-knit groups that rely on each other for support both on and off the field. This creates a sense of belonging and fosters strong relationships among teammates. As a game that values respect and sportsmanship, players are expected to show respect for their teammates, their opponents, the officials, and the game itself.
These values have been shown no more so than during the recent game between The Brumbies and Fijian Drua, in which the Australian side came out 43-28 victors. At the end of the game, Nic White can be seen giving an opposition player some one-to-one coaching:
Amazing that the cameras caught this. Peer to peer coaching is still the most important and impactful form of coaching. You should all be encouraging your players to do this post game. Nic White passing on some advice 👇 pic.twitter.com/UDfYC8vl0f
