Condition and performance hugely important in Six Nations campaign
The two countries are big rivals but this year’s clash has added spice after Wales coach Warren Gatland slammed England player Dylan Hartley in a recent interview.
England are slight favourites for this year’s Six Nations but they are likely to face stiff competition from France and Ireland.
English hopes have been hit in recent weeks by the loss of several key players. Courtney Lawes, Tom Croft and England captain Lewis Moody are all missing with injuries while Delon Armitage is currently appealing an eight-week suspension.
The absences have led to England coach Martin Johnson making a number of late changes to his squad, underlining the importance of players maintaining their sharpness and conditioning even if they are initially overlooked for selection.
It is also likely that further enforced changes with the physical nature of rugby meaning that injuries are an all too common occurrence. Of course, employing the right methods of injury prevention and management can reduce the time spent on the sidelines.
fitnessASSIST provide a huge range of products to sports and fitness professionals, including training aids and a sports injury treatment range. We also offer sports science testing services as used by leading professional clubs in many sports, including rugby union.
The use of training aids contributes to improvements in areas such as power, speed and strength and can help athletes stay in peak physical condition.
Injuries are an unfortunate part of contact sports but the risk of injuries occurring can be minimised through the effective use of tapes, strapping and bandages. Rapid treatment can also reduce swelling and aid recovery.
Sports science testing is now considered essential in professional sport environments. However, it can be expensive and difficult to access. fitnessASSIST is committed to making sports science accessible to all through our in-house assessments and mobile testing lab.
