In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast I am speaking with Josh Darrall-Jones, Yorkshire Carnegie Rugby senior academy strength and conditioning coach. Josh is combining his PhD whilst working at Yorkshire Carnegie and has just published his first paper which you can download from the links below. Its a really interesting chat with Josh as he is one of only a few PhD students we see working with elite players and using them players for research which is great.

In this episode you will learn –

  • Managing work & a PhD
  • Testing with academy players
  • What makes a top class rugby union academy player
  • Differences across countries/hemispheres
  • How is testing influencing your practice
  • Use of the 30-15 test
  • Using the isometric mid-thigh pull
