Kinda what i was thinking. During our summer workouts for football and i know it would work for rugby too, We did a 3 days M-T.-TR lifting with an emphasis in the Olympic movements, with speed/tech work done 2 times a week and speed endurance 2 times a week. split the session do running in the morning and lift in the afternoon. wed-fri were body weight/optional rest days. with but running was always m-t speed/ endurance and then tr-f speed endurance lift m-t-tr worked well.
