The Nigeria Rugby Football Federation has released courses and guidelines for prospective enthusiasts who intend to deepen their knowledge of the sport at the National Institute of Sports ahead of the 2021/2022 session.
This piece of development was revealed by the President of the NRFF, Kelechukwu Mbagwu, during a virtual meeting with members of the NRFF board.
The announcement confirmed the efforts made by the board to expand rugby from the field to the lecture room where more knowledge can be acquired by coaches and administrators.
Last week, the Director of the institute, Dr. John Dadi-Mamud, confirmed the inclusion of rugby in its programme after meeting with some members of the federation in Lagos.
A three-month sandwich basic coaching certificate is also on offer for candidates interested in expanding their knowledge in rugby and other 22 sporting disciplines.
The inclusion of rugby in the programme of the institution had elicited some level of excitement from players, coaches and some other enthusiasts, who described it as a positive move at creating an intellectual boost to the game in the country.
