Here at Goff Rugby Report, one of the more frustration things we see is how many photos show rugby players using their mouth guards incorrectly.
Rugby training has gone digital and at the center of it, Atavus has partnered with a company named Volt to provide any rugby player, anywhere, with the ability to prepare for the season and stay conditioned throughout the season.

This summer allowed the American public a decent look at the current and up-and-coming stars, and that player-centric search tends to monopolize attention. But there is an equally exciting cast of coaches wending through the system. In particular, there’s a trend among former Women's Rugby World Cup (WRWC) players who are returning to the national ranks, only with whistle in hand.
