Should i still be working out my legs when I have have plenty of rugby ...?

My workout schedule is usually:

Monday-Chest
Tuesday-Back
Wedesday-Bicep and Tricep
Thursday- Delts and Traps
Friday- Neck and Forearm... no comment

How should i balance out my leg workouts... because I have rugby practice, for a good 2 hours, on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesday.

maybe do some squats before a day or 2 of rest.

You're an athlete, why on earth have you got a bodypart split? Worse still, a whole day JUST for arms?!

So how would i change it up? Also, I've found this 5x5 Routine ... input?

Monday & Thursday
A-1: barbell bench press
A-2: bent over row
B-1: barbell curl 2x5
B-2: skull crusher or triceps pushdown 2x5

Tuesday And Friday

B-1: barbell squat
B-2: glute/ham raise
Seated calf raise 2x5
Turkish Get-up 2x5 l,r (left and right)

(Im worried that theres no shoulder workouts)

Try an upper lower split. I assume your rugby is in the afternoon/evening?

for example

monday AM: Max Effort Upper Body
PM: Rugby Practice

Tuesday PM: Rugby Practice

Wednesday AM: Max Effort Legs
PM: Rugby Practice

Thursday: Off

Friday: Repetition Effort Upper

Saturday: Game?

I dont know why your rugby practice is on Mon/Tues/Wed. Its a pretty ****ty way of distributing the workload but whatever.

I like this for "in season" rugby training,

1.
Squat
Clean
push press

2.
deadlift
a row

3.
sprints

Other stuff i occasionally chuck in, tabata front squats, core work, shoulder pre/rehab stuff, bag work, DB complexs

Agreed.

Reset your whole work out.
