The Rugby Site is an exciting online coaching tool that provides an opportunity to learn from the best coaches and players in the rugby world, with the likes of Graham Henry, Richie McCaw, Wayne Smith, Dan Carter and Victor Matfield amongst those contributing to the site.
Through the partnership, coaches operating within the region will be able to subscribe to The Rugby Site for just £40 for one year - a saving of 60 per cent on the usual £99.95 annual subscription.
Ben Rose, WRU Development Manager for the Ospreys region, said:
“At the Ospreys we believe that coach is king and better coaches will develop better players and better people. Through this partnership with The Rugby Site there is an opportunity for Ospreylian coaches of all levels and ability to upskill themselves by learning from the very best across the world. It gives coaches access to new techniques and ideas from outside the region, which can only be good for the development of players and coaches alike.
