Get ready to play with these work out recommendations

May 14, 2020


We’re all aching to lace up our boots, jog onto the pitch, and tackle somebody, but we’re going to have to wait a while longer. Thanks to the global pandemic, spring rugby season was a wash and things aren’t looking great for the summer either. We’re still cautiously optimistic rugby will return in the fall and anxiously await greenlights from state authorities. However, that’s no reason for complacency! 

We’re inspired by all communities who have responded to this crisis with creativity and optimism. That includes the rugby world and we’ve compiled a list of solo training programs various folks have put together to help you get a taste of rugby and ready to play when the time comes.
