“I believe the session will be interesting and beneficial for all parties and I’m sure we can all learn something from each other as we continue to work to improve our coaching technique.
Smith added, “ The strength of Rugby League in London and South East is constantly advancing and this event can also contribute to maintaining that momentum”.
