There is nothing worse than hearing someone say “back in my day”! Well, I am heading down that line to explain the 2017 coaching structure. I can remember like it was yesterday being named in the Otago NPC team to play Southland in the big local derby. The part I remember most was the quality of the coaching. We had two ex All Blacks in Laurie Mains and Lyn Jaffray. They really knew their rugby.
