Newcastle Falcons back-row Andy Saull took charge of a Regional Development Programme (RDP) at Novos RFC last week, with more than 25 coaches from across Northumberland in attendance alongside 15 players from the Novos first team.
Accompanied by Falcons skipper Will Welch, Chris York and Harrison Collins, Saull focussed on the contact area and breakdown.
As well as delivering a presentation to coaches and players alike, the former England Saxon talked the attendees through a series of practical drills with input from his fellow teammates.
The RDP is just one of a number of commitments the Falcons has towards local clubs and schools in the region. Novos descended on mass to Kingston Park for yesterday’s Aviva Premiership match against Worcester Warriors and their support is greatly appreciated by the club.
