Rugby: Speed, Agility and Quickness for Rugby by Alan Pearson
As used by the world's top Rugby union teams; Speed is what separates the best players from the rest. But to succeed in the sport today, all rugby players are expected to be able to run, side-step, jump, tackle and control the ball quickly and accurately. SAQ is a revolutionary training method which has proved that the explosive speed, acceleration and reaction times so crucial to the sport can now be developed in all players - whatever their size and shape. Packed with drills designed to get each player to their maximum velocity in the shortest time possible, it also improves balance, co-ordination and body awareness and hence results in fewer injuries. Essential reading for coaches working with all ages and at all levels.
