Yesterday we were joined by England assistant coach, Bev Priestman. World Cup's get an incredible amount of exposure around the world, but I was looking forward to getting an insight into some of the areas that coaches don't usually get to hear about. The role of an assistant coach can change depending on the environment and hearing Bev compare the preparation of England and Canada, was very interesting. I am always fascinated by how teams structure their training camps and how they go about achieving the balance of work and play. In addition, the dynamics of game management as a staff was another area that Bev details in the interview and how a staff incorporates head coach, assistant coaches, analysis departments through around the half-time process was excellent I thought. We finish up with a little player and coach development topics, where Bev has some excellent advice on coaches who aspire to work at the highest level.
