In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Head of Performance at South Sydney Rabbitohs, Jarrod Wade. Jarrod has recently been promoted to Head of Performance at the Rabbitohs so it was a great time for me to grab him and get him on the podcast. Because of his vast experience in the rehabilitation of athletes, the focus of this episode was around that, including programme design and injury risk reduction.

If you enjoyed this episode you may enjoy episodes with Jarrod, you may enjoy these with Matt Taberner, Hamstring Masterclass and Enda King.

I hope you enjoy this episode with Jarrod Wade.
