Rugby union Prop Workout

I am a Strength & Conditioning coach and luckily for you i did a prop forward workout plan for my case study to pass my course.
First thing, because rugby uses more than one muscle typically in every part of the game, i would avoid the single muscle approach you are using now, you should be putting your focus in compound exercises, which use many muscles in one exercise rather than doing 2-3 exercises to hit them same muscles.
For my case study i had the client doing strength training 3 days a week, using only 5 exercises across all 3 days. They were the squat, bench press, deadlift, over head press and bent over row, if you look up any rugby strength training program youll notice in most cases they use the exercises i just listed, because they build strength and muscle at the same time.
i researched the net for my own strength program and found loads that kind of went the same route, the one that worked for me personally, and my client i trained for rugby, was this:
Bent over row 5x5
Overhead Press 5x5
then what you do is alternate the workouts, im guessing you play games on a weekend, so id do a M W F split, so what youd do is on M=A W=B F=A M=B W=A F=B, then the cycle starts again. As for the work weight, if you know your 1RM, knock it down to 80% on each exercise, then everytime the next time you do that workout you add 2.5kg to the overall, apart from deadlift which is 5kg. If you fail to do the exercise for the full 5x5/1x5, you use the same weight the next time, if you fail the same weight 3 times in a row, you deload that exercise only by 10%.
This workout is called "StrongLifts 5x5" and there is a website with more details, and an app that lets you track your progress.
Besides the lifting side of things, you obviously need cardio so make sure you do that too, then there a lot of sports specific stuff i could go into, but im trying to earn a living from this Strength & Conditioning thing so im not gonna give away all my knowledge haha
I really hope that helps you out.

Is there a reason why you're not squatting?
Please don't be one of the guys that just says "cuz it hurts my back."
You're cheating yourself.
You're also hitting your arms more than you're hitting your legs. Realize that on your chest and back day, you're also indirectly hitting your biceps/triceps.
I'd do a 4 day upper/lower split, or a 3 day full body.
A. Box Hops or Long Jumps 5x3
B.Squat 5x5 or 8x3
C.Split Squats 4x8
D.RDL or GHR 3-4x10
A1.Incline DB Bench 5x5
A2.Lat Pull Downs 5x10
B1.Bench Press 3x8
B2.DB Row 3x8
C1. Dips 3x8
C2. Hammer Curls 3x10
If you want a more detailed workout, just shoot me a PM
