Had the best time learning and refining tackling skills from Gilly during our session. I was a bit nervous at the start but he was so friendly and easy to get along with. Learning from the Master himself was an honour. I look forward to booking more sessions. Thanks Gilly!

Gilly was great with the kids, they got a lot out of it. Highly recommended.

My son Tyler had a session with Gilly and absolutely loved it. Gilly is so friendly and down to Earth. His passion and knowledge of the game is second to none and this is present in his enthusiasm during the session. He showed Tyler plenty of drills he could practice at home and pasted on heaps of tips to help his defensive game. Tyler is very keen to have another session. Highly recommended. Thanks Gilly
