I was invited by the RFU to assist U19 England Manager, Joe Lydon to develop a proposal for the establishment of a national network of regional elite academies to help identify and develop players for international representation. The proposal presented a number of innovative strategies not previously considered and included the establishment of 7 regional academies linked to the United Kingdom Sport Institute network and tertiary institutions. It proposed the introduction of 15 RFU professional club academies distributed throughout England, which would then be grouped within the RFU regional academy structure. Further, it also recommended the competitive development of players by the introduction of a three conference national academy competition. This competition would ultimately see the identification of players into one of three conference teams to play in a tri-series conference elite competition used to identify players for the England U19 national squad.

In addition to the above, I was invited to conduct a series of coaching sessions with teams competing within what was then the Zurich Premiership national professional competition. While working directly with these elite players I also held numerous meetings with members of club coaching staff in an effort to exchange ideas and assist their professional development.
