George Tavner and Andrew Webb, two prestigious youth coaches from the Rugby Football Union (RFU) and England’s Premiership, will lead three workshops during this year's Portugal Rugby Youth Festival (PRYF).

Tavner, who is currently the leader of the Bath Academy, and Webb, who is now working directly for the RFU, will conduct a session aimed at Portuguese coaches on Friday, April 12, in partnership with the Portuguese Federation of Rugby.

During PRYF, on Saturday and Sunday, the two prestigious coaches will promote two open sessions with coaches, managers, players and other stakeholders.

The session’s themes relate to training, competitiveness and mental strength of the young rugby players.

Daniel Absolon, from Premiership Rugby, commented on the partnership between the prestigious league and PRYF: “Premiership Rugby is delighted to support the Portugal Rugby Youth Festival. In supporting coaches from our clubs to share their knowledge and experience with local and international coaches, we hope to support the growth of the game internationally and continue to showcase Premiership Rugby abroad”, he concluded.
