Freddie Burns candidly reveals how rugby players are keeping fit with no sport on
England and Bath rugby star Freddie Burns has lifted the lid on how Rugby players are trying to keep fit while there is no rugby on the calendar.
As everyone will know by now, rugby is pretty much off the cards for the foreseeable future as the Coronavirus pandemic spreads though Europe, putting an end to much of the rugby that we know and love.
Because of this, rugby players have not been able to play or train together.
This has meant that many players have been forced to train on their own, keeping fit at home through their own methods.

Celtic Rugby DAC have taken the decision to suspend the Guinness PRO14 season indefinitely due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
This effectively means that rugby will not be resuming in the league unless certain criteria are met.
A Guinness PRO14 statement reads:
The board of Celtic Rugby DAC met by teleconference this week and agreed upon a strict list of criteria that would enable the Championship to recommence. However, no decision on a definitive re-commencement date can be made until four key criteria can be met within our respective competing territories:
- Public Health Authorities cease to prohibit the resumption of sport and group training
- Travel restrictions between our territories are lifted
- No forced isolation or quarantine orders are in force when visiting our territories
- Player welfare is safeguarded, including requirement for a suitable pre-recommencement training period, to be established in conjunction with the high-performance personnel at our participating unions and teams
