The Best Rugby Training Resource On The Web
Thank you, it was an incredible feeling. I don’t think its really sunk in what we’ve achieved and how significant the tournament has been. We’ve come a long way as a team and the scenes on the pitch and in the dressing room after proved how far we’ve come. To have won it with this group of boys was extra special and there was a lot of smiles, laughs, songs after that final whistle went.
Rugby has always had a strong strength training culture (no pun intended!). Since the turn of professionalism in 1995, rugby has made huge advances in strength & conditioning. And I’m proud to say that in many respects rugby is leading the way in the s&c field.
Yet, there are still some common misconceptions when it comes to strength training for rugby. Below are 5 of the most common misconceptions I see when it comes to rugby strength training.
Sam Burgess has been on every front page and every back page since the disastrous World Cup and subsequent falling out from Bath Rugby. The cross code star is back in his adopted home of Sydney and this week will make his triumphant return to Rugby League. Whether he will return with his tail between his legs or be welcomed home as a hero is yet to be seen. He has certainly caused a whirlwind of news and managed to join both League and Union together in the debate. League will view this as a victory as they have their star man. Union will be kicking themselves as an opportunity missed and looking for a scapegoat to blame.
How did this all come about?
