A player selected for Academy entry will be directed into a personal development programme geared primarily to ensuring that the athlete’s capacities and abilities as a rugby player are maximised. Regional Academy programmes involve strength and conditioning, sports medicine, physiology, psychology and nutrition.

The athlete will be supported by Academy staff, specialist coaches, sports scientists and other specialists appointed by the Academy Manager. All areas of physical, technical, tactical and psychological development will be supported, as well as game knowledge (rugby brain), video analysis and a competitive programme appropriate to the player’s development.
