Raiders release preliminary findings from High Performance Review
The Canberra Raiders Board of Directors has been presented some initial findings from the Raiders High Performance review, in order to act upon them immediately in the short term before the official report is delivered later this year.
John Waser and Michael Hagan met with the Raiders board on the South Coast on Wednesday afternoon, at the conclusion of the three day review camp with players and coaching staff.
They delivered some initial findings to the board and submitted early recommendations based on the observations and input from the playing group and coaching staff.
The four key areas which have been recommended are:
1. A restructure of the NRL coaching staff to better cater for the new direction of the high performance environment.
2. More resources toward Rehabilitation of players and Medical staff
3. Adding some depth and experience to the playing roster for 2012 and beyond
4. Moving to a full time Strength and Conditioning Coach for the NYC team
Raiders Chairman John McIntyre said it was encouraging for the board to receive some strong initial feedback from the review, in order to implement any possible changes ahead of the 2012 pre-season in November.
