The life of a rugby mum. Episode 3.

So, my intention was to write this blog once a week, well that didn’t happen did it?  March is my manic month of birthdays (mine included), we all have one month of the year that is birthday mad don’t we?  Well March is mine and as much as I love rugby and I have enjoyed writing about life as a rugby Mum, the blog got put to the bottom of the to do list, with buying presents, cards, wrapping paper, organising birthday parties, etc taking priority.  But it occurred to me that we only have a few weeks left of the season and I really need to give you another instalment about the madness that is life as a rugby Mum!

The Life of a rugby Mum. Episode 2.

Wow! That is the best word I can find to describe how I feel about the comments made on the last blog, thank you all so much for your positive feedback. It means a great deal to me.

This week I will admit that I have been struggling to find the inspiration, but your amazing support has spurred me on to write something about the fantastic training session we had this week, what a way to finish the half term.

The life of a rugby Mum. Episode 1!

Life of a rugby Mum.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Anita and I am a rugby Mum!  I have been asked by the fab guys at BeRugby Magazine to write a blog about the life of a rugby Mum – well more specifically my life as a rugby Mum!  My son plays for our local club (Ashford RFC) and is currently in the Under 9’s or as we affectionately call them the Spitfires.  I will openly admit to you I have never done this before, but I am so excited to be part of such a fun magazine for our rugby kids!

Preo’s Blog – Match day prep for the pro player.

An insight into match day prep for a pro player from our ambassador Adam Preocanin.

Match day preparation for most professional rugby players starts in the few days before the game, not just the night before.

You could even argue it starts in the previous weeks and months in terms of the technical and tactical preparation. In this instance, I am talking just about the physical preparedness that an individual is responsible for.

On not watching Toulon

This weekend I was meant to watch Toulon play at Sale. Live. But, family comes first, so I changed my plans.

It was the second time I have nearly watched Toulon play. The first time was in France.

In 2014 I was working in Toulon. One of the reasons I was there was to write about the Rugby League World Cup, which was being part-hosted by France. The other reason was to research my children’s book, Surface to Air.

Try Reading

When I was your age – if you’re under fifteen – I didn’t like reading. I struggled with it. Books were too long and about things I didn’t care about. Like history and dragons and stuff like that. Nothing about sport. Sport. That’s what I really cared about. I wanted to play it. I wanted to watch it. I wanted to live it. But there were very few books about sport to read. For children, anyway.

A day in the life of a Pro rugby player – Adam Preocanin

This is a brief introduction to give you an idea of a day in the life of a professional rugby player. Each player is different but this is a routine that I follow and fit around the structured rugby training and sessions.

7.10am Sleep is important so I wake up as late as possible before having to get to training. To do this I organise my kit, breakfast and lunch the night before so I don’t have to mess around in the morning – just jump in the shower.
