After the unbelievable success of the Special 'Football' Edition of the podcast, the natural progression was to get a couple of guys on for a rugby edition. Tom Farrow, Dan Howells and Sam Portland give their insight into a variety of areas when it comes to the physical preparation of rugby athletes. With such a varied background, all three guys speak candidly about their experiences and give a really rounded view of what its like to work in rugby, issues they encounter and how they get the best from their players.
