PE analysis of performance

Extracts from this document...


Analysis of Performance When playing rugby, my position is flanker. I have some obvious strengths and weaknesses when I am playing, and this piece of writing will consider these and evaluate ways to improve my performance. I think that one of my main strengths as a flanker is pressurising the scrum half a lot. At scrums and rucks I am quick to move around the side to rush the scrum half into passing, possibly forcing an error, or just tackling the scrum half, enabling a turnover or if not it slows down the oppositions ball. This is a main strength required when playing flanker and I think that I use it well most of the time, but I have to be careful to stay onside so as not to give away any penalties. I think that a second strength in my game is that I am aggressive when making tackles or running with the ball. I have more agility because I run in a position where I can side-step relatively easily. ...read more.


Also I think I need to improve my reaction time, especially when reacting to the stimulus, often being the referees whistle. This would suggest that I was concentrating wholly on the game, but if I was more aware of the stimulus then I would give away fewer penalties and infringements, but also, my game would be more disciplined. I could sprint rather than jog to the breakdowns sometimes, so that I could spoil more opposition ball or even turn it over. Improving Performance Over time I will take actions which will increase my strengths and decrease or totally get rid of my weaknesses. This section will help to prioritise the areas for improvement and the areas where my performance is at its optimum level. I think that the most important of my weaknesses to work on is reaction to the stimulus. I am fairly disciplined, but if I could improve my reaction time then I would become much more disciplined and not make as many errors. ...read more.


Assess the whole situation, not just one small part of it. I could possibly keep a tally of how many infringements I make in match situations in training, and then aim to make less than this amount in a match. I could record the number I make in a match and aim to concede less in the next match that I played in. To monitor the progress of my strengths I could record how many turnovers I make and how many times I force an error on the scrum half due to applying a lot of pressure. In training match situations I need to concentrate on the game and the teams performance, not just my own. Increasing my levels of fitness would allow me o get to breakdowns more quickly, thus making me less likely to stand out and possibly get in the scrum half and fly half's channel. An exercise that would help to increase my strengths and at the same time help to diminish my weaknesses would be practising a rush defence from the triple threat position as it would help me to advance with the line and stay onside at all times possible.
