Just one observation/question….
If you look at a rugby match..you will normally see that the forwards first must execute a power activity and then run a longer distance with the ball eg. Break through 2 defenders and then run/sprint.
With back line players the opposite happens…especially the backs in the wider channels first run/sprint with the ball and then a power activity must be preformed eg. spin or side step…
When using tempo phase 3…can you put the power activity (shuttles etc) at the beginning of the run?? and for the backs the power activity at the end of the run??
What do you think?
I think it is hard to apply that level of precision between the positions. When they have the ball that may be true of the backs, but most of their high intensity runs are done without the ball, in support, constantly adjusting their lines. Likewise, are we differentiating between the outside backs, or the scrum halves, who would usually be stepping, cutting or swerving and then running? I would just keep it as simple as make sure you’re doing some running, make sure you’re doing some changing of direction and some getting up and down, then the rest is up to you. Feel free to play with the concept as you like.
