RUGBY BRICKS PODCAST #34 OTERE BLACK

(Hit Play For The Full Episode)

Otere Black plays as a first five-eight for Manawatu in the Mitre 10 Cup, Blues in Super Rugby
Aotearoa and Maori All Blacks and someone I had the opportunity to play at the end of my playing
days.
Otere is currently leading the top of the table Blues around the park as the starting first five-eighth
and has been a standout this season. Just like Otere, this episode was classy and here’s what we
cover:

■ The combination of glutes firing and bracing your core, enhances the control of the pelvis.
■ How Otere learns from Dan Carter and how this has allowed him to view the game
■ Leading the Blues in the COVID pre-season against Beauden Barrett
■ Otere’s game process and how he handles game driving of the Blues team

His process around goal-kicking off of the Wolf + and how his kicking has evolved over time
This episode was insightful as I got to really dig deep on the details and learn from Otere and what’s
influencing his success at the Blues this season.

If you’re a Kiwi this episode is a special one for you and if you’re from anywhere else in the world – you’ll hear from how some of the best players in the world do what they do. Get some pen, paper and get ready to learn from this episode with Otere Black.
