The best thing we shared

On the record

You hear that Schmidt is very controlling and players have often mentioned the stress of Ireland’s video analysis sessions. The perception may be that Schmidt’s style of coaching and his demands are actually removing players’ ability to make decisions for themselves. But I don’t believe that Schmidt is trying to have complete, 100% control of everything because he doesn’t believe the players can do it themselves. Joe is a former teacher and I believe he’s trying to actively teach the players how to manage the game better and make decisions for themselves.” – Read Lynne Cantwell’s latest Six Nations column.
