Mark Timson Sport Science Observation & analysis Section 1 Skills required to fulfil the positional role Elements/qualities Necessary to produce an affective performance. General fitness: - This is required within sport because when in a game situation the player's level of skill needs to be obtained throughout the whole game. General fitness within the game of rugby includes: - * Stamina /endurance * Strength * Flexibility / suppleness (and) * Speed Stamina or Endurance- This is the body's ability to keep going for long periods without tiring. There are two parts that make up Endurance: - 1. Cardiovascular Endurance - This is the ability for the heart to deliver oxygen to the muscles over a long period(s) of exercise. As the lungs also pay a part in this it can also be called: 'Cardiorespiartory Endurance' 2. Muscular Endurance- The ability of the muscles to maintain and repeat contractions. This kind of stamina is important in rugby, as the muscles contract a lot in the same way, as you play for long periods of time with very short recovery time i.e. at breakdowns of the game. If this didn't occur, you would not be able to last the whole match, as you would quickly tire, from the same and repeating contractions made by the muscles, also stamina is required as the muscles need to work at a high performance rate for long periods of time. ...read more.


E.g. before going into contact situations is there support for you to offload to? If so the pass has to be quick and accurate as the time is very limited and the decision must be made very quickly. Or if attempting a drop goal, is the situation correct for it and then is the distance kickable. This decision must be made smoothly and quickly to create the right technique for kicking. Speed of reaction - This is the time taken for which the body reacts and adjusts to a certain situation. In rugby it can be useful to react quickly, as you may be able to intercept the ball, make a quick sharp tackle very quickly with good speed of reaction of the situation faced. It also might help you in spotting positions and reacting accordingly. Timing- this is the ability to react at the right moment. This is very important in rugby, as timing is everything. When making a tackle if the timing is not correct the situation may become dangerous. If the timing isn't right the body position may not be safe /correct so injuries may occur. When kicking a ball to goal if the timing of the pint of kick isn't right the accuracy and power may be disturbed .If when going ...read more.


He should also try to increase his stamina by doing training to help him with his stamina so he doesn't tire so quickly. Description of Practice / situation to aid performance To improve the accuracy of his kicking, Joe should practise aiming at targets set out before. To increase his confidence of his kicking he should start at very short distances .He could do this with a partner standing first of all 10m away gradually increasing to 40-50m. Once this has been done to a sufficient level of accuracy he should start to try more demanding angles from on the pitch to touch for example working across the pitch to gain greater accuracy in all areas of the pitch. When again this has been done to a sufficient level he should then try to kick from facing the goalposts from a side angle and try to hit the post upright. When doing these practises Joe should try and be as accurate as possible, if he sustains the correct technique and the correct body position and balance the timing will be automatic the accuracy will come with this. If he keeps control of the ball and his strength and not try to kick it to hard to direction of the ball should be such of what he had in mind. Diagram- 1. Distance (varied) 2. ...read more.
