Coaching salad – Tom Hicks – #109

My guest this week coaches rugby in many different environments and his name is Tom Hicks.

This interview was recorded in May of 2023 and we talked about his experience under awesome coaches at Clifton, what it means to be a pathway coach, some technical details about what makes a good player, coach development, the challenges around the environment that young players will be going into and the opportunities that are out there.

This episode is absolutely packed with great information and terrific stories – I hope you enjoy!
