Rugby’s finest coaching minds converge for Brisbane Global Tens summit 

Wallabies coach Michael Cheika, five-time Super Rugby winning coach Robbie Deans and Scott Robertson, coach of the reigning Super Rugby champion Crusaders, will host a summit for aspiring coaches next week as part of the Brisbane Global Rugby Tens festival of rugby.

The high-powered trio will participate in an interactive master class and Q+A session at Suncorp Stadium on Thursday February 8 from 12pm-4pm.

Community coaches of all levels are invited to learn and engage with the very best in the business, gaining insight into their world of coaching.

“I’m really looking forward to sharing a few thoughts about coaching with a bunch of people who are also passionately interested in the craft,” Robertson said.

“And I’m equally looking forward to hearing what Robbie and Michael have to say – hopefully I’ll pick up a few tips myself!

“It’s exactly this sort of event that makes the whole week of the Brisbane Rugby Tens such a great festival of rugby.”

Deans, who is bringing his crowd-favourite Panansonic Wild Knights back to Brisbane for the Tens for the second successive year, said he was also delighted to have the chance to engage with local coaches.

“The best thing any coach can do is to continue to learn and grow,” Deans said.

“The coaching summit is one of those opportunities. Not because you will have an opportunity to interact with coaches who currently operate at the elite end of the game but more so because you can learn from the lessons they have learn’t along the way.”

The event is jointly presented by Rugby Australia, Queensland Rugby Union and Duco Events.

The Brisbane Global Rugby Tens is supported by the Queensland Government through Tourism and Events Queensland and Brisbane City Council through Brisbane Marketing.
