About #RSNlive17


#RSNlive17 is the third annual conference of the World Rugby Science Network. #RSNlive17 is part of the Network’s strategy to showcase leading international research relevant to the rugby codes and aims to build on the success of the previous editions of the conference. Our goal is to deliver an exciting, accessible and informative event which will be of interest to the membership of the Network and many others involved in rugby and in the science and medicine of team sports.

The speakers will share their current work across all of the World Rugby Science Network’s sections, including a variety of topics such as biomechanics, coaching science, injury prevention, match analysis, nutrition, physiology & conditioning, psychology, sports medicine, and strength & power.
