Renowned for his dedication to training, Dan presents speed workshops throughout Europe that are aimed at everyone from serious coaches to young players. He is one of the fittest and fastest men in world rugby.

In 2004 Luger was awarded Member of the Order of the British Empire on the Queen's New Year's Honours List for his services to rugby. Luger was born in London and is currently living in the south of France.

An excellent book for players and coaches alike. Luger and Cook provide drills for individual fitness training as well as multi player drills for practice. Excellent emphasis on overall fitness. A must to every player looking to improve and every coach wanting to make his players better.

Great detail of drills, both for indiviuals and teams. Good overview of how to bring together the overall ideas of rugby-specific fitness. But a little short on specific workout regimines.

Very pleased. It's modern, cmprehensive, and sophisticated.

Excellent training programs that take a player from the ground up to full competition. Especially liked the statistics on what world class players perform on certain drills and lifts.

Some of the conditioning things are a little dated, but the sport specific drills are well worth the purchase of this book.
