Kane Hames Visit

nz1On Monday the seventh of November the Senior Squad in Glenstal Abbey School received a surprise guest when Kane Hames, a member of the NZ Maori squad, arrived to help our coaching staff with training.
img_7587After a quick introduction and photograph, Kane together with our forwards coach, Tom Hayes, put us through our paces, with particular focus being placed on our scrum.
Kane had a great insight to offer to our front row and gave them a few tips to help with this aspect of their game. He stayed around afterwards to chat with the players who are injured or on a rest week.img_7751
Kane later spent some time coaching the Junior Squad.
It was interesting to get his thoughts on Ireland’s historic win at the weekend and the upcoming game against the All Blacks. Hames himself became a fully fledged All Black against Australia this year and plays for the Chiefs in Super Rugby.
Hopefully Munster can repeat Ireland’s heroics this Friday and get another win over New Zealand opposition.
