BEN JONESCOACH COLLAROY COUGARS RUGBY CLUB
‘…Feeney credits the impact of All Blacks Skills Coach – Mick Byrne, whose work has filtered down into their franchises over the past decade, as the reason NZ Rugby is so healthy’
Paul FeeneyFormer Auckland Blues & Western Stormers Asst Coach
‘…Mick Byrne has done a great job for them. Where they are brilliant is they are the best tactical kicking team in the world. The biggest thing is you can’t give them turnovers, where they are very, very good & better than most teams.’
Heyneke Meyer2015 World Cup
‘…In all the decades I’ve been coaching there are 5 players who reached their maximum potential – George Smith, George Gregan, Stephen Larkham, Rod Kafer & Jonny May. The first 4 were Brumbies. Alongside the brilliant Fourie du Preez, they were the four brightest players I’ve ever coached. …Rod Kafer helped create our new system of attack… Kafer hadn’t been picked for Australia yet and so he & I began working on a blueprint together. We ended up transforming rugby for a while because we created a style that no one had seen before & which, eventually, everyone wanted to use… It led to us becoming Super Rugby Champions’
Eddie JonesHead Coach Australian Wallabies
‘…Mick has the great ability to be able to observe an athletes skillset & then be able to identify what needs improving or changed. Mick’s ability to communicate clearly & simplify instructions to accommodate all athletes & coaches is an asset to all… He is able to challenge & discuss when appropriate. His success in encouraging athletes to change behaviors & improve skillsets is a testament to his ability to get critical messages across. Mick’s preparation for training, video sessions & meetings was always of a very high standard. His ability to focus on the most critical aspects rather than everything allowed players & coaches to have the clarity to understand & be aligned on what needed to be achieved. Having worked closely with Mick for over 16 years, I found him to be an outstanding resource, who I could trust both in & out of your environment.’
Steve HansenEx New Zealand All Black Head Coach 2012 – 2019
The Six Degree Sports rugby coaching app has been a very invaluable resource and coaching tool. In coaching junior rugby players, we have been able to access tools such as step by step skills videos and a structured training session plan that has been tailored to when and how we train. This has never been done before. A new session drops in every week so that all coaches are on the same page when it comes to imbedding fundamental rugby skills that all young players need to progress their development, stay safe and have fun!
Tim SilcockJunior Rugby Coach Manly Roos
‘…I worked with Mick for just over a decade & he was like the glue to my everyday success as a rugby player & a goal kicker. He had a growth mindset & pushed me to be better each day. He gave clear instructions & broke things down to make everything more simple to understand & learn from. He had a very unique skill to always know what needed adjusting in regards to my technique but somehow made me feel like I came up with the solution. He had a great understanding of the key fundamentals of our game & what’s needed to be successful. I loved working with Mick as he demanded excellence.’
Dan CarterEx New Zealand All Black Five Eight
‘…They're probably the form team in the world now… Mick Byrne has made a difference. You can see his influence on the team’.
