BeRugby are happy to announce our partnership with Yorkshire Carnegie RFC community department. This is a great opportunity to use rugby and our magazine to encourage reading in young people. We have always been big supporters of helping children who are struggling with reading and this was one of the many reasons we started BeRugby.
Yorkshire Carnegie has a strong community and youth ethos so they are the perfect club for us to work with and continue to encourage playing rugby in young people. We wish them all the best in this years Championship.
Another great article from our young writer Arun! He delves into what a healthy player needs to be thinking about over and above merely training hard.
As players started to turn their minds to the eagerly awaited Premiership & Championship kick-off. Most of them are just finishing a term known as “pre-season”, an action undertaken by clubs from levels 1 to 10. Pre-Season is a process where players will get back into game day shape and go through around 5 weeks of out and out strength & conditioning fitness work, before they switch to more gameplay focused work. Players will work both in the gym and on the field to try and get the edge on their opponents for the forthcoming season.
Earlier this month we announced an exciting partnership with Hard Edge Rugby coaching. Over the next few months we will be bringing you their great coaching tips, hints and advice.
However, they are now off to Chicago to coach in clubs and schools there, so we will be bringing you news of their experience in a regular blog until they return.
We are happy to announce that BeRugby will be working with Hard Edge Rugby to bring you coaching advice, hints and tips. This will develop over the next few months and we will focus on coaching for minis/juniors and youth rugby.

England rugby players make centenary visit to CWGC Brookwood Military Cemetery
England rugby players Jonny May and Will Collier have taken time to pay tribute to the war dead at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s biggest UK site, Brookwood Military Cemetery, near Woking, in Surrey.
We are pleased to announce that BeRugby Magazine is now the official media partner of Serge Betsen Rugby.
We have been to their camps and witnessed some great coaching and real rugby fun. We can’t wait to go to more!
Our Ambassador, Adam Preocanin, has played top level rugby across the world. His latest blog gives us some valuable insight into his coaching experience. You don’t often get to hear tips from a professional rugby players coaching point of view so we hope you enjoy this. Many thanks for your thoughts Adam!
As well as playing professional rugby, I have also held various coaching roles over the past few years — from schoolboy rugby in Australia and England, to men’s rugby at London 1 level.
Without simply re-packaging a RFU coaching resource, I will try to discuss an area I feel is important to bear in mind when coaching kids. Hopefully it will bridge the gap between professional rugby and the Sunday morning bedrock of the game.
BeRugby Magazine – Thanks for talking to us today Phil. The Six Nations tournament is here. What makes it such a special tournament?
Phil Vickery – It has to be the heritage of the event and its history. There is a great camaraderie despite the differences between the countries and their histories. It is so competitive and passionate. I am proud to be English/British but I played the game and walked off the pitch with friendships. The tournament is full of tears and laughter!
