Corry set to boost Navy rugby

The Navy rugby team will be boosted further with several coaching sessions next week with former England Rugby Captain Martin Corry who will be in Sri Lanka at the invitation of Land Rover in Sri Lanka.

Martin Corry

Corry, who has 64 caps for England was one of the most consistent and durable back-row players of his era. He will impart training tips and share his knowledge with the sailors, who finished second in the final points table of the Caltex Inter-club ‘A’ Division League Tournament.

Martin Corry (38) who played Number 8, blindside flanker and lock, made his England debut against Argentina in 1997 and was a member of England’s 2003 World Cup winning squad.

He was England’s National Rugby Captain thrice, from March 2005 to March 2006, in November 2006 and September 2007. He captained his club Leicester to five Premiership titles, two Heineken Cups and the Anglo-Welsh Cup.

Corry retired from international rugby in 2008 and has established his own rugby development programme in the UK.
