I am a rugby player about to enter my third season. I play center and I was wondering if anyone here who is familiar with the game could give me some position specific drills/training tips.

I'm starting my first season this fall so I'm currently learning the game and training(out of shape badly!). I dont know a lot of back drills, being that im 6'2" 260lbs you can guess which position I will play = )

If your alone, sprints or pyramids ( http://www.rugbytactics.com/drill.php?drill=20 ) cutting drills and practicing the various kicking techniques. If you have a buddy, you can do passing drills, such as switching, pickup and throw, or kick back and forth to practice catching kicks.

Yep, so true. How about "Were a drinking team with a rugby problem!" that usually fits pretty well also = )

We play Union here.
