rugby.com.au: I’m already really enjoying these weekly chats with NRC coaches, in which we delve a bit deeper into technical elements of the game, and of coaching, and gain some proper insight into how the modern coach and player operates.
This week, it’s Melbourne Rising’s Zane Hilton, who I always have a good chat with whenever we speak. Over the first two rounds of the NRC this season, he’s found his team on the receiving end at halftime, most notably last week where the Rising trailed Queensland Country 32-16.
After the Rising scored 30 unanswered points in the second half to take the win, I was really keen to find out what on earth he said at halftime!
