    I've not been around much, but yes, I'm a sport coach. I am a Rugby coach at rep level in Australia. I've also run a BJJ/MMA academy. I also coached American Football and track, but that was out of...

    Soak in white vinegar overnight before washing.

    The particles that cause the stench are alkali. The acetic acid neutralises it. At least that's my understanding.

    Whatever the result, it was the final we've waited 28 years for. The best team of all time won. Now, we've got to work on winning some Bledisloes before we get another shot in Japan.

    It was a great World Cup. In fact, it was almost perfect. Except for those bloody All Blacks. They're just so much better than everyone else.

    No. Never. You can work on athleticism in conjunction with sports, but you will lose time developing game sense, which can't be acquired in any way other than playing.

    531 for beginners (and, indeed, Rugby) is probably not a good idea. If you're new to training, you do not need plyometrics. Your conditioning is more important than lifting and you've ignored it....

    This is a far more important question than anything to do with lifting, to be honest. It's a key point for many players.

    The first thing is that you have to have strong hips. If you can't keep...

    Where do you train? I've recently moved to South Brisbane, but I'm probably moving over your way in January. I'm keen to find a good school which can accommodate a creonte purple belt.

    Clarification: I said " I prep for". That's a typo. I "prepped" - and that was actually before you were born. I was fortunate enough to complete the 40 (and 50) man kumite.

    I don't do positional routines. They are bunk. You could be a 120kg TH with a 300kg squat. A typical "prop" routine for someone like that is about as useful as Devon Toner training to get taller.
