The best way to be successful in the sport of Rugby is to be having fun and playing hard. Whether you are at practice, in the gym or playing in a match unless you are playing professionally the sport is all about having fun and giving your all. Within this framework though, there are three things that can help any rugby team to be more successful. These things are conditioning, communication and tackling.
Conditioning is I vital element to any Rugby team. If you can’t sprint, wrestle, and fight for a full match your team will lose to the team that can. At all levels of Rugby conditioning will win the ball, win the race, and eventually win the match.
Just behind the desire to play and being in condition to play is communicating with your team. Call out to let your team mate know you are in support while you are on offense. When you are on defense yell when there is an overlap, what player you are marking. When you and your team communicate everyone is more aware and in better sync.
My last tip to help you to be a Rugby success is to practice your tackling. Everyone is going to be doing their best to run around you or run you over and you will get a lot more chances to make a play by making a tackle than you generally will by making a run.
Focus on these three aspects and what your team works on in practice and you will certainly be a rugby success.
