Fitness for Winning Rugby is a unique publication in as much as it looks at fitness for rugby in the widest sense of the word. Alongside core fitness information it includes valuable chapters on nutrition, injuries, recuperation from injury both physically and mentally as well as the importance of training and playing the game free from drugs that will enhance performance.

Throughout the book are colourful diagrams linked to physical training together with hand drawn anatomy illustrations that add an important educational dimension which makes Fitness for Winning Rugby an essential publication for parents who have children playing rugby, coaches and players of all ages and sexes. It will be especially useful for developing players who are looking for ways of taking their game to the next level and breaking into representative rugby. Students at schools and colleges studying the GCSE and A Level Sports Studies involving the principles of fitness for sport as well as the game of rugby will find this book an important reference source.

“Improving your fitness is not something that is going to happen overnight; it has to be a behaviour change, often a lifestyle change. However by following the key steps highlighted in this book it will certainly help in winning the challenges ahead”- Andy Robinson OBE.

“The book will certainly appeal to all who coach and play the sport of rugby at all levels of the game. A must read” - Maggie Alphonsi MBE.”
