Ask a Professional Rugby Strength & Conditioning Coach Anything

Thought I'd do a little Q&A since there are quite a few rugby questions that pop up in here. Happy to answer questions not related to rugby and general S&C questions. Going to say now a lot of answers will probably be "it depends." Ask away!
