BACKGROUND

ABOUT OUR SKILLS HANDBOOK

We would like to use this opportunity to thank several organizations without whom this handbook would not have been possible. Firstly, the Canadian Rugby Union who created a similar guide in 2009. This version has drawn a lot of inspiration from that original work which was itself a derivative of a manual set up by the English Rugby Union. 

Secondly, the writing team of Tudor Bompa & Frederick Claro whose trans-formative work Periodization in Rugby was also published in 2009. “Periodization in Rugby” is, without a doubt, the most complete analysis of periodized training for amateur rugby players and should be essential reading for all rugby coaches who are working with young players.

SUPPLEMENT STACKS

ideal for any rugby player during any training period

Our range of supplements are designed to be used in combination with one another. The advantage of using a supplement stack as opposed to individual formulas is that you can give your body exactly what it needs exactly when it needs it. Here are some of the stacks we’d recommend for players in the tight-five.
