John Fogarty On His New Role With Ireland

Ireland scrum coach John Fogarty spoke to IrishRugby TV this week about his new role with the team and the opportunity to work with all the national teams at the High Performance Centre.

Fogarty took up the role of IRFU National Academy forwards coach in July 1 2019. Since then he has spent time working with the Ireland Women’s and U20s as well as across all four provinces to further develop the alignment and deliver a technical programme for both scrum and lineout for coaches and players in the elite player pathway.

Earlier this week 45 players gathered at the HPC to meet the new coaching team before heading back to their provinces for the next few weeks of interprovincial and European action.
