Mistakes In RUGBY That Make You Look Dumb
When you’re playing rugby, there’s a lot of physical contact. That’s one of the reasons it’s a high-risk sport, and why players are required to follow certain rules about how much they can hit other players.
The rule of thumb is that tackling should be done with your arms and shoulders, not your head. If you do make contact with the head, you are automatically liable to get a red card.
If you’re a captain, you’ll need to make sure that everyone on your team understands the system and how it works. If someone isn’t following performance standards, or they are showing signs of undermining the coach’s strategy, it’s your job to get them out of the game.
In addition, you need to ensure that everyone on your team knows the strategic vision for the game and how their role fits into it. This can be difficult, as a rugby team is a social entity.
Having a culture of Decentralized Command will help you get all your players to understand the strategic vision and make the right decisions on the fly. However, it’s important that you don’t over-inform the team or allow a player to dominate the conversations in a way that makes the other players feel like they’re getting left out.
