Within rugby I have found that my tackling
and passing are my strengths. When in game situation I am able to pass the ball
accurately under pressure and tackle well allowing my team to keep possession
of the ball and get an attack. To keep these a strength I need to make sure
that during training I am tackling and passing with the correct techniques
As a winger it is imperative that I am able
to tackle correctly without giving away a penalty in vulnerable places. Height
of tackles is important and knowing where and when to do it can also be a
strength of mine which is demonstrated regularly in game situations.
I have found however that when rucking, I
often do the wrong thing, this is because when rucking I am coming in from the
side or doing it the wrong way, in order to improve I need to remember not to
come in from the side, by putting cones on the side letting me know I cannot go
there during training, by doing this, it will allow me to play better in game
situations and help me remember not to come in from the sides.
Another area for improvement was my aerobic
endurance. Currently I am struggling to last the 80 minutes of a rugby game and
due to this I am unable to play to the best of my ability without getting
tired. Fitness training sessions will improve this and build up my aerobic
endurance through pushing my body to the limit. During these sessions I can
take part in continuous running test such as the 12 minute cooper run or the
bleed test to see improvement as well as to simulate the changing in direction
and pace during the game.
