Rugby league

Rugby League demands endurance, speed, agility, strength and power, as well as technical and tactical awareness. Improvement in these areas helps reduce the risk of injury so you can play better, more often, and for longer.


The Fundamentals programme provides information to prevent rugby league injuries and enable safe participation. The programme is based on the ACC SportSmart 10-point action plan.

Pre-season Fundamentals workshops are held in your area. The workshops are a mandatory requirement and provide coaches, managers, trainers and players with injury prevention education and strategies on how to improve performance. Contact your local community rugby league office for more information.
