I'm starting back o playing rugby this season, but after not having played in 11 months, it's fair to say I don't have much pace. Although I am a prop, I know that a degree of mobility is needed so I want to work on getting my speed up so I can make rucks etc.

What would be the best way to go about getting faster?

Plyometrics may be a good place to start?

Sprints, hill sprints, HIIT, etc. Plyometrics are more advanced and won't help you as much as the basics.

All good for speed and anaerobic fitness (which is probably more important for a prop anyway).

All great suggestions Kerbing, a simple way to improve your agility and mobility is the Dot drill... just Google Dot drill or stick it in YouTube. Also have a look at some SAQ ladder and hurdle work.

Finally... ever wondered why the pros always seem to be able to get to the ruck? That has a lot to do with the fact that they can read the game and position themselves well. Pick a couple of pros that play in your position and watch them during a game. See where they put themselves in relation to other players and the ball.

Hope this helps Craig.
