Warriors help out at coaching sessions

Players from the Glasgow Warriors squad will be imparting their experience to local BT Premiership clubs on Tuesday evening (4 October) as they assist in the clubs' coaching sessions.

Whether in general back play or specifics such as scrummaging techniques and line-outs, the Warriors players have been allocated to each session depending on which areas the club coaches would like to work on.

Warriors head coach Hugh Campbell said: "We contacted all the Glasgow district clubs in the premiership to offer coaching assistance from our players. We're delighted to assist in developing the game at all levels in our district and not only will it help the clubs but will also give our own players valuable coaching experience and help develop their leadership skills."

Kenny Murray, head coach of BT Premier Two club Cartha Queens Park, said: "I think it's an excellent initiative. To have input at our session from guys who are playing at the professional level will be great for our players, especially given that we can get specific help on the areas we'd like to concentrate on most. Seeing the different levels of the game working together is really encouraging for rugby in Glasgow."

Does this mean that Scott Forrest and Iain Kennedy, who are apprentice players and still, therefore, registered with their club, will not be available for their club's training on Tuesday because Glasgow Ws have sent them to help other clubs? If so, that is absurd!
