RGC 18s Head Coach Saul Nelson is looking forward to seeing the work in training be turned into performances on the field with the start of the RAG season.
“After a long period of training, and a full preseason with 2 age groups it has been a heavy few months.
Some of the boys went back to college and played and then some went to play club rugby and to see them all come back together and apply themselves is fantastic. They have trained very hard, not just physically but we have also given them some mental challenges as well.
For us as coaches it would be awesome to see all of this come through on the pitch, and I think we have looked at a mindset shift, as in the past we were happy to just be competing against the regions, but I would like to believe that the players understand they deserve to be in the RAG.
I also can’t thank the families and parents enough as without that support then we wouldn’t be here. You can see that they are all proud to see the players represent RGC, and we appreciate the efforts of the support group. Some of them travel 2 hours to training and that doesn’t go unnoticed and it's a huge testament to their dedication”
