This weeks player to watch is big man Jared Goosen. In what's sure to be a big forwards game this Friday he always puts a little fear in opposing teams. An example is shown in this picture. He's a smart player with over 5 years experience. His hard running lines and power in scrums and rucks are sure to be more than helpful. I'm sure glad I never have to play against him that's for sure. 🐥💪🏽 #canadarugby#rugby#rru#boysinblue#playeroftheweek#proplife#SorryJon
A successful speed testing session last week with Penryn RFC Colts. 5, 10 and 30 m speed tests carried out with the timing gates to establish a benchmark for these lads at the start of preseason.
Overall some good times achieved and a chance for us to view running mechanics at high intensity. The aim now is to get these guys quicker through acceleration and top end speed with attention to foot strike, leg positions, trunk stiffness and arm split to name a few. #running#rugby#speed#acceleration#posture#trunk#plyometrics#jumping#bounding#angles#force#power
Chris 'Chrisp Weird' Wier "Yo, take a picture with me and this sprout." - This is the image I receive as I turn around. I didn't even have my phone in my hand! He's the one line king of weird but we at ELEH embrace the weird and the quirky. This is Chrisp's first season with us. After graduating from Canisius College he joined BRC and was prevalent in the D3's march to the Empire Final. He's since joined our Sevens program and has become a fan favorite! He brings intensity and passion when he plays. When he's in space he's elusive af and he just clearly loves Sprouts. It's been a pleasure to have you around this season Chris and we can't wait to see what you can do this weekend at Blazing 7's and in the very near future with our 15's this Fall.
Let's finish this season off right ELEH! Prepare yourselves because we will need our best.
One. Two. Three. ELE.
