Bath Rugby Brain Training

I am not sure if anyone else has seen this but read this earlier in the Chronicle.

[www.bathchronicle.co.uk]

I wonder exactly what they are doing to improve their mental strength? Would have been good to have had some of this training last year for the Semi against Stade and some of the away games where we threw away results!

That's why they're doing the training.

Sounds good to me.

Agreed

With more attention to that area last year it's quite realistic to believe a Top Four finish and, potentially, a Challenge Cup Final victory, would have been possible.

Glad the coaches have spotted the need.

Didn't we sack the sports psychologist after the successful year.

The mental composure has been all over the shop.

Now we need a specialist to stop their Arris's falling out and we'll be fine!



I probably don't know what i'm talking about.

Definitely pleased that we've brought sports psychology back, I can't fathom why we ever got rid of it.

However, even more than that I'm excited by this:

Quote:
Working with Cardiff Met University, the backs have been wearing body-mapping sensors while kicking and passing on the artificial pitch at Farleigh.
It is hoped it will allow them to study their skeletal set-up during those movements and, possibly, find areas for technical improvement.

I think rugby is miles behind similar sports in terms of biomechanics. The most obvious opportunity for improvement here is scrum-half passing, but all distributors should be looking to work on their mechanics. This is the sort of thing you could see making a massive difference to the likes of Chris Cook and Will Homer. Really pleased we're looking to develop this. Hope it's just the tip of the iceberg.

Possibly the most ridiculous decision the club has made in recent times was to get rid of the sports psychologist. Can only assume the decision was made by someone who doesn't understand sport.

To play devils advocate I see that the ABs were 40-6 up at HT and lost the second half 14-28, does this mean that they are mentally weak? Or is that just the way a game goes sometimes, one team has a flyer and gets the rub of the green and then it evens out over the 80? (I'm not saying we haven't had our issues btw)

The ABs have had issues switching off when they've built a lead. It's a habit they need to get out of because a better team than Australia will really put them under pressure and claw the deficit back. I think they've has some issues with continuity once the bench empties.

For the first 55 minutes their only competition was trying to score more points than the number of minutes that had elapsed. They emptied their bench and everything switched off.

Losing focus when the game is realistically over as a contest and letting the other team back in is a bit different to losing focus/making ridiculous choices when it's a 5 point game.
