Building a High Performance Rugby Environment  with Paul Gustard

The importance of environment, culture and expectations has become increasingly recognised as a vital ingredient in the success of a Rugby programme.  This has been pioneered recently at international level, and amongst the very top professional clubs.  This Conference is an opportunity to identify the ingredients of a thriving Rugby environment, and see how these can be established in a school.  Paul Gustard will share his experience as a coach at Saracens, England and now Harlequins, in identifying the features and processes of a high performing Rugby culture. 


  • Creating a high performance environment

  • Rugby Periodisation – approaching the season as a whole
  • The Head of Rugby as a leader - leading from the front, leading from the back
  • Getting the balance right (push and protect)
  • Up to date Rugby Specifics - have your say...
