"Hi Neil

I have found the information on your site very useful. I have recently used the 'Drop Out' drill with my senior team to improve their drop outs. The hang time is now longer and more accurate as we are now putting the ball from the restart into the oppositions 22.

Keep up the good work."

"Hi, Neil, I've been mixing a combination of your drills and advice together, with a very good outcome. Teaching it down a level and working into the advance fase, truly has put a spark in my u10 team, at Newtown, here in Qld Australia. Thank you so much keep up the great work."
