Neil Henry is known as one of the game's greatest tacticians.
At the helm of 248 NRL games during his 11-year stint as a first grade coach, as well as success as a Queensland Maroons assistant coach and Junior Kangaroos mentor, the 60-year-old has built a formidable career at the elite coaching level.
So much so, he is now working with Queensland Rugby League and NRL in a coaching consultation role, servicing a variety of areas including the new player development framework, RISE development program and TackleReady program.
He is also continuing to develop coaches at the community and sub-elite levels of the game.
With a particular passion in imparting knowledge and insight into the game's future leaders, Henry recently sat down with QRL content producer Cameron Stallard to share his coaching philosophy, drive to succeed and tips and tricks to being most effective with players.
The exclusive sit-down will be shared in a three-part series called 'Making coaching count', with Part I being shared today, Tuesday December 7, at 5pm, on QRL.com.au and the QRL Facebook page.
Part II will be shared on Tuesday, December 14 and Part III on Tuesday, December 21.
