Training what’s involved

Training predominately focuses on the technical aspects of rugby, developing teamwork and individual skills. There will always be an element of fitness in these sessions, however it is not the primary focus. So it is up to you as a player to dedicate sometime to work on your own conditioning, whether that’s strength, endurance or recovery.
