Values Based Rugby
After almost 20 years of being involved in Rugby Union through schooling and as both a professional player in Australia and abroad Salesi Manu was forced into early retirement after a serious knee injury in Japan.
Returning to Australia and now a family man with 2 young children, he continued his involvement with Rugby through coaching in one of Australia’s top boys schools however found there was a big gap for Rugby whilst trying to find an activity for his then 3 year old son.
So the decision was made to design a program for the Australian people, by the Australian people. With the help of other coaches, players and teaching staff he developed 1st FiVes Rugby – a values based Rugby Union play program.
A program that is now owned and delivered across the country by some of the best ex professional players in the world.
