Australia adopts guidelines to enhance safety and minimize mismatches

"one summer of that and you will be in the shape of your life."

Or will feel like you're in cardiac arrest and decide that perhaps being a forward in 15's is where your future lies...

He has some awareness you're right, but I sort of view this video like watching someone shadow box... They can look brilliant against nobody... But who knows what they'll look like against an equally matched opponent...

He side steps sure, but a lot of those kids look as committed to the tackle as a club prop to a non alcoholic beer... And looking at the size mismatch, I can't say I blame them...

Australia adopts guidelines to enhance safety and minimize mismatches

10/10 I think we've discussed the failures of club rugby and it's old large coaches preaching smashing rather than tactical aversion and offloads etc.. I think one of the big issues in club rugby is the attitude with some of those who play... I remember coming through the U13's sort of ages and there were beardy sort of children who took great pleasure in 'dominating' the little ones of us (myself included) just because; I guess they were bullies and it made them feel good... But all this did was knock confidence of the less developed lot (myself included!)... You sort of think, "yeh, great you can run through us all, perhaps help us work on tackle techniques etc, rather than giving yourself kudos points"...

...I had the benefits of getting growth spurts and filling out, but some guys never did so much...

As team mates (looking back now), players would be much better assisting their less able team mates in improving their tackling techniques/confidence/abilities, rather than just

That looks like a hell of a training session! Would love to know the stats if any were kept, seemed in the early stages that Georgia was getting a good drive on, England seemed to hold it for a while then they crumbled on a couple of occasions, would be awesome to know the rulings overall on the scrums.

Also wonder if it was all very friendly or whether any tempers somewhat flared? Played a few training matches in club rugby between 1sts, 2nds, 3rds etc and occasionally tempers flare a bit...

Yeh, but generally speaking, you guys tend to be faster and trickier to catch...

I suppose the reality is that whilst you guys may avoid a good percentage of big tackles each game, the big ones might end your game quickly...

I hope it doesn't!!! At over 105kg's I'd be forced to tackle people my size instead of the little ones!!!!!
