Though a sport native to England, the game of rugby perhaps rivals only soccer in its global popularity and respect as a world-wide sport. In recent years, it has developed quite a strong North American following with vocal enthusiasts promoting its growth. Unfortunately, despite the rising presence of the game, the resources available to ensure teaching of the proper rugby fundamentals have not kept pace with growing interest. In Winning Rugby, Brian Quistberg presents the authoritative rugby guide for coaches, teachers and players, covering everything from ballhandling to backplay and set pieces.

Fully illustrated, the guide is complete with easy-to-understand diagrams. Winning Rugby drills cover individual, unit and team skills, including: ballhandling; kicking; contact (rucks, mauls and tackling); running; backplay; and scrummage/lineout.

Winning Rugby also features sample practice plans, coaching strategies, fitness guidelines and individual/team drills.

For those who wish to improve their understanding and execution of the game, for those who wish to utilize more exiting and effective drills in training, Winning Rugby is the practical guide for player, teacher and coach.
