Rugby Coaching Blog | Professional Rugby Advice & Coaching

A rugby coaching blog well worth following by David Clarke


In the last few weeks I have been following an excellent blog from an Irish conditioner called Mike McGurn.

As it happens, he works for the Ospreys, the club I am involved in. However I came across this blog myself.

What makes it so good is that it cuts through the jargon and the “gym is all” mentality, focusing on the individual and what he or she can do.

The stories about Gavin Henson, Brian O’Driscoll and John Hayes make for compelling reading. He has some good tips for amateurs as well.

Here is the link to his blog.

Great link Dan. Thanks for that!

Thanks Dan – I’ve been following your blog for a couple of months now but haven’t got the hang of posting comments regularly as yet. These recommendations are spot on – the telegraph has some great sports writers. I’ve enjoyed Mikes views so far.

I really enjoy both of these blogs.. I like Mike’s views on the gym, what you should be doing, and what probably isn’t as effective for your body type. He generally writes back to comments too, so you can get answers to your questions!
