    Concussions and Protecting Our Players

    It was the period when refs started calling and you had the hit and chase that the issues were large. The new engament has reduced the hit and collapse which is where many issues were. You also don't see that many scrums go down in amateur rugby where it is mostly a restart method. Pros are...

    Rugby 7s general chat

    Based on current standing the Oceania men's qualifying tournament will be hot with all of Samoa, Australia and Fiji competing for one spot! The remaining two would then need to go to the repecharge where there is only one more spot

    Force 2023

    It the away strip. https://westernforce.rugby/news/force-2023-jerseys-revealed-20221128 There have often been calls to swap, but I can understand from a brand establishment and club culture (sea of blue etc) why to stick with blue. If I remember correctly back to the establishment to the blue...

    Jersey launch https://westernforce.rugby/videos/watch/5d471bd5-5028-4a37-b9bc-9282afd37b8c!2023%20Jersey%20Reveal Nice to see the girls in the launch just as much as the boys. Similar the black and gold hoop away jersey look very similar to some of the state jerseys from back in the day

    It would be interesting if someone has the time to see at what point spread value on the rankings you historically have a greater than 75% chance of winning and run a similar analysis. For instance there is currently <1.5 points seperating Aus, Scotland and Argentina and I would think that any...

    Yep - poor management in return which is on the whole of the performance and medical staff, or if the coach is overfilling them the coaches

    Wallabies 2023

    But from reports it is lack of fitness (linked to club S&C) and to counter it they are putting big loads into players where clubs have just tried to get them to peak. While not perfect high workloads, and in particular a rapid increase in load is associated with soft tissue injuries

    Wallabies 2023

    There is a challenge between Super Teams and National from a S&C perspective. The staff at Super Teams have the the goal of getting teams humming at the start of Feb and peaking around June. At the national level we want to peak (most seasons) around August giving no real recovery between the...

    Wallabies 2023

    Though it is getting harder to access. Back in the 2000s and early 2010s it was published on the website, now it is a bit hidden away. It is also technical in how it calculates everything (average team) so you don't always see the raw numbers and don't get it per club. What is really good...

    In finding the link to that last tweet, I did find this article that was recently published by Dean Brenton currently working with a job title of National Head of Athletic Performance at Rugby Australia. A systems approach to calf complex injuries May be due to some recent mad scrambling...

    Sevens 2022/23 (World Series etc)

    Getting it of Bien and onto Stan/9 would be a good start. You could easily run the whole tournament on Stan and the drop the Aussie games on 9gem across the weekend. Nice little half hour bursts or rugby. Even if on slight delays to fit in around regular scheduling or tennis etc. I think...

    Sevens 2022/23 (World Series etc)

    Why not leave him in 7s. Build a winning Oly team around him. That will bring more rugby exposure and Oly medals lead to more funding from Sports Australia. Their funding is tied to medal potential and that alone

    The table has not updated. They have a news story up on the same site that says there was a swap https://www.world.rugby/news/774257/australia-swap-places-with-scotland-in-world-rugby-mens-rankings-powered-by-capgemini
