Richie Gray and the Rhino Collision King at Rugby Expo 2011 at which he received the Technical Innovation Award’

Springbok coach Heyneke Mayer has recruited Rhino skills coach Richie Gray, the inventor of the sensational new Rhino Collision King product which is sweeping the world of rugby, as a specialist breakdown coach. Richie (no relation to the current Scotland and Lions lock of the same name), who is also Rhino’s sales representative in Scotland, was introduced to Rhino via Glasgow Warriors coach Gregor Townsend and Martin Johnson over two years ago. He had spent a number of years studying developments at the breakdown in the game globally and developing as a result his Collision King product which aims to encourage correct body position and technique at this most critical phase of play. ‘Games are won and lost at the breakdown’ is a current coaching mantra which is approaching status as a truism and Richie is now widely regarded as the foremost thinker of his generation of rugby coaches in this area. The Rhino Collision King moreover continues to sell extremely well in many different markets around the world. Mayer called 43 year old Gray up to join the Springbok squad in Johannesburg on Monday and commented: "I do think there has already been a step up in the way the Springboks played the breakdowns this season, but we can definitely improve further. Richie brings a lot of knowledge on the breakdowns and I'm confident he will be able to add a lot of value in the coming months. I've known Richie for a decade and I have always been very impressed with his level of dedication when it comes to ruck play." The Cape Argus newspaper put it even more succinctly in its headline on Tuesday – MAYER CALLS UP ‘COLLISION KING’ .
