The second defensive workshop of Leeds Rhinos Coach Education Programme, delivered by Rhinos Head Coach Brian McDermott took place at Leeds Rugby Academy on Monday and was again a great success.
It was the fourth delivery in a full year's calendar of Coach Education delivered by McDermott and his performance team which was supported by Leeds Rugby Foundation.
The four workshops, which have so far has included two offensive workshops and two defensive workshops, have attracted an average of 40 Community Coaches from many clubs across the Leeds & District area.
Over the last few months, Leeds Rhinos Head Coach, McDermott, has educated the coaches on a variety of subjects including coaching styles and ethics, coaching fun and small sided games, skills and technique.
Future workshops will include more delivery programmes from McDermott and involvement from Leeds Rhinos Head Conditioner Jason Davidson and his team. Added delivery from Leeds Rugby Foundation staff will include age specific workshops and primary rugby league in particular.
Leeds Rugby Foundation's Community Club Development Officer, Sam Horner, commented on the success: "All our coach education is free and importantly it is very much part of our development plan for rugby league in the Leeds and District area. The involvement more so this year of Brian McDermott and the performance team has added another level to the whole programme".

Rhinos and England star Jamie Jones-Buchanan has praised the club's faithful supporters for their efforts in helping get the team over the line for victory at Salford. With time running out, Leeds had a goal line drop out and were under pressure but JJB said the roar from the travelling section at the AJ Bell Stadium played a huge part in getting the win.
Leeds Rhinos kept up the pressure on St Helens at the top of the First Utility Super League with a hard earned 22-18 win over Salford Red Devils thanks to tries from Zak Hardaker, Kallum Watkins, Carl Ablett and Stevie Ward.
