    Hey guys,

    Due to the current climate, my rugby clubs trying to think outside the square for its up-coming off season and next season’s “too wet to train on the pitches” sessions.

    I’m thinking of making 4-5 progressively heavier sandbags to use in relays and mini-circuits and general conditioning. Have any of you made them or ordered them cheap enough over the net?? If so any ideas or even any snags we need to watch out for, going by your experiences,

    Cheers Robbo90…


    Hi Robbo

    You can buy some industrial plastic bags and fill them up with sand and then cover with lots of gaffer or masking tape- very cheap option!!

    Try army surplus shops and get the old kit bags they used and again fill up and away you go- should last the pre season trianing and again you can repair with the tape.

    You could also fill up the water bottles that go on top of the drink dispensers with sand and they bocome farmers walk handles etc.

    Go and speak to local tree surgeons for big off cuts of wood- they are great for dragging (get them to bore a hole to thread through some old rope), lifting and throwing.

    Recycle your old tackle bags and fill them up with sand and drag them too- horrible!!

    Last one- local scrapyard and get anything that is heavy!!!!
