VIDEO – England Women fitness masterclass

22 July 2014

Ahead of next month’s Women’s Rugby World Cup, we asked some of the stars of the England Women’s team to take us through some fitness drills that everyone can try at home.

The team have already shared their tips on rugby skills, diet, nutrition as well as the core skills required to compete at an elite level. 

Now, Kat Merchant, Georgina Gulliver, Lydia Thompson and Kay Wilson highlight some fitness drills you can do in the comfort of your own home.

If you’re interested in giving rugby a go, then visit to find your local club.

The Women’s Rugby World Cup kicks off on August 1 with England taking on Samoa in the opening round. England then face Spain on August 5 and Canada on August 9 at Marcoussis in Paris.

The semi-finals and final take place on August 13 and 17 at Stade Jean Bouin, also in Paris. All matches will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
