The Answer To Rugby With Soul
Rugby website Rugby Pass in a recent article highlighted the fact that rugby has lost its soul with clubs focused on the business side of the game which takes a heavy toll on the players lifestyle physically and mentally.
Rugby 15’s and Rugby 7’s players are picking up injuries as a result of the demands of the long playing season.
“You’re seeing injuries now you’d more normally associate with serious road-traffic accidents” – Wayne Pivac, Wales head coach.
“I’m talking about knees which have been obliterated, completely blown out. Hamstrings ripped off the bone. The boys need looking after.”
Player welfare at the heart of Rugby Tens
The World Tens Series places an emphasis on ensuring that Rugby Tens players are looked after on and off the field.
New rules ensure player welfare
Rugby which is ten minutes a half and unlimited rolling substitutions reduces the risk of injuries and a 12 week season ensures plenty of action for players and fans and players will not be overplayed.
Players competing in the World Tens Series have more time to recover and the World Tens Series will host player development workshops at the first ever tournament in Bermuda which gets underway from 24 October until 07 November 2020.
Players will be educated on subjects such as anti-corruption, anti-doping, contracts and what is expected of a professional athlete.
The World Tens Series leadership team of Paul Holmes and James Walker are passionate about rugby, the players and the fans and Paul Holmes has developed rugby talent around the world and he has created a rugby family on and off the field.
