    If you remember one thing about this article make it this: speed is the most important physical quality you need to succeed in rugby. Strength may get all the accolades but in my experience speed is the true physical ability that separates great players from average players.

    A coach I’m fond of quoting frequently says “getting strong is like falling out a boat and hitting water”, and he is right. There are strong players at every level of rugby. The biggest difference I’ve noticed between coaching international players and regular pros is their speed. To me it’s clear: if you want to be a great player, you have to be fast.

    A common saying among football coaches in the US, speed kills, lack of speed is suicide.

    Man, this just goes to show how little you understand about the sport. If this were the case you would replace all the forwards with backs. You honestly have no idea.

    I'll let BOTT handle this one as he is more an expert with rugby than myself. What you're saying there is just plain dumb.

    There's too much speed associated with your sport. Do you snort it or smoke it ? Haven't had anything to do with it over here. We believe in keeping out athletes clean.

    Must have been written by someone in America who has absolutely no idea. Probably a gridiron coach I'd say.
