About the Author

An integral part of the England set-up and British Lion, Dan Luger plays for top French side Perpignan, following successful seasons with leading London clubs NEC Harlequins and Saracens. He has been described as the most exciting wing and deadliest finisher in European rugby, having scored 23 times for England in appearances. Renowned for his dedication to training, Dan presents speed workshops throughout Europe that are aimed at everyone from serious coaches to young players. He is one of the fittest and fastest men in world rugby.

In 2004 Luger was awarded Member of the Order of the British Empire on the Queen's New Year's Honours List for his services to rugby. Luger was born in London and is currently living in the south of France.

Paul Pook is strength and conditioning coach for NEC Harlequins RFC and has worked with elite athletes in a wide variety of sports, including squash, swimming, track and field, and rowing. Pook is a former professional rugby player and has worked with many of the world's top international players. He is recognized for his innovative approach to sports conditioning. Pook is co-author of The Core Workout and managing director of Fitness 4 Sport Limited. He edits www.fitness4rugby.com, the leading rugby fitness Web site; and he is in training for triathlons and a stage of the Tour de France.

I was hoping for a lot more conditioning exercises and drills. Not a complete waste though. There's enough in it to make use of it still.

Format: Paperback
This book is comprehensive and can be used to draw up specific training plans for individual players, and as a basis for a general approach to various phases of team coaching. I have not seen another text as good as this as a reference tool for rugby conditioning.

Great Overview Jan. 9 2007
By R. D. Jackson Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Great detail of drills, both for indiviuals and teams. Good overview of how to bring together the overall ideas of rugby-specific fitness. But a little short on specific workout regimines.

Best so far Aug. 20 2004
By A. A. Howard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Very pleased. It's modern, cmprehensive, and sophisticated.

Excellent training programs that take a player from the ground up to full competition. Especially liked the statistics on what world class players perform on certain drills and lifts.

Some of the conditioning things are a little dated, but the sport specific drills are well worth the purchase of this book.
