Team welcome to the pre-season
My name is Brent Frew (Frubee) and I am the Rugby Manager at Burnside Rugby Football club, having just started in the role. Previously I have been a Rugby Development Officer with the Canterbury Rugby Football Union, involved with the Crusaders as a skills coach with both Robbie Deans and Todd Blackadder and most recently the national coach and director of coaching for the Brazilian Rugby Union coaching the men’s XV’s and Under 19 teams. I have been involved professionally in rugby with the CRFU for 12 years and I have loved every minute of it.
But thats enough about me, I’m more interested in you and our great game of rugby. If you are already decided and committed to a club for 2015, great, I wish you all the best in your rugby in 2015.
However if you are undecided where you will play in 2015 then I want you to strongly consider playing for Burnside RFC. Our intention is to have a colts premier and colts/U20/U18 teams in 2014.
We will be placing a strong focus on our colts grade teams as they are our future. My intention is to implement systems and structures that replicate the Crusader Academy programme and develop players in their rugby and life skills that replicates the skill set required to excel not only in a high performance environment but also excel in life. Be under no illusions it will require commitment and dedication from you and I will also have high expectations of you.
I am committed to creating a team environment that is based on the five universal values that will be “givens” in our interactions;
1. Be Honest
2. Be Compassionate
3. Be Fair
4. Be Respectful
5. Be Responsible
I will ensure ensure our coaching and management staff remain at the leading edge of international best practice. I am strongly focused on developing a culture of continual learning where development, effort, excellence and performance is supported recognised and celebrated.
So if you would like to be part of this as a member of the Burnside RFC our pre-season is on;
1. 8th December start at 6:30- heading home at 8:00pm at Burnside RFC
2. 15th December start at 6:30- heading home at 8:00pm at Burnside RFC
3. 22nd December start at 6:30- heading home at 8:00pm at Burnside RFC
I look forward to seeing you playing rugby in 2015 and hopefully as a member of the Burnside RFC and bring your mates also, see you at pre-season on Monday.
