Chewing The Fat with Nicky Price



It’s that painful time of the year again for northern hemisphere professional rugby players when all the off-season festivities gets shredded. The rugby pre-season is one of the most painful yet enjoyable experiences. It sets the tone for the season ahead, creates mental strength and forms everlasting bonds on and off the field.

Whether you’ve already started or you’re still enjoying some time off, here are a couple of workouts to help keep you in decent shape. All you’ll need is a sports field or running track and Kettle Bells.
