La dimension mentale en rugby
Un match de rugby ne se gagne pas sans une certaine force mentale. Mais, au final, qu'est-ce que " le mental " en rugby ? Comment se développe-t-il ? Comment l'entraîneur peut-il optimiser la performance des joueurs et de l'équipe ? Au moment où la psychologie du sport connait un essor considérable, il reste néanmoins de nombreuses zones d'ombre, tant dans les connaissances que dans les pratiques, qui limitent encore son expansion au sein de ce sport. Deux hommes de terrain, dont l'un est également chercheur en psychologie du sport et l'autre expert de la formation des entraîneurs de rugby, se rencontrent pour proposer un ouvrage répondant aux nombreuses questions que chaque acteur de ce sport collectif de combat peut se poser dans le domaine de la dimension mentale. S'appuyant sur les connaissances les plus avancées en psychologie du sport et en rugby, ce livre affiche une approche novatrice basée sur une modélisation du système de performance dans sa globalité (joueur-entraîneur-équipe-structure) et l'élaboration d'un plan de formation du joueur à la dimension mentale permettant d'aider les entraîneurs et les éducateurs de rugby à définir des priorités et mettre en oeuvre des situations selon les niveaux des joueurs encadrés.

The revelatory autobiography of a rugby colossus: Paul O'Connell There has never been a rugby player quite like Paul O'Connell. He is synonymous with passion, heart and determination; but he is also the thinking man's rugby player, a legendary student of the game. As the heartbeat of Munster, British and Irish Lions captain in 2009, and captain of the first Ireland team to defend a Six Nations championship, O'Connell has emerged as perhaps the most beloved of the golden generation of Irish rugby players. In an autobiography as intense as its author, he tells the story of his remarkable career. 'The years of O'Connell and O'Driscoll were as close to a golden age as ever Ireland will get and O'Connell's book tells you how it all happened ... It should be mandatory for every Irish squad member to read O'Connell's book to better understand what it takes to make a team' David Walsh, Sunday Times 'O'Connell has emptied the tank here. ... What has come out ... is a psychological profile that is almost shocking at times in what it reveals about the bloody single-mindedness of the competitive gene' Hilary A. White, Irish Independent 'The intense physicality of his rugby upbringing is an abiding theme ... along with humour, the craic and an extensive knowledge of how teams work' Paul Hayward, Daily Telegraph 'I found The Battle entrancing' Stephen Jones, Sunday Times 'Excellent ... [an] eye-opening account of the never-ending battles he fought' Rugby World 'Revelatory ... Unflinchingly charts his personal evolution ... He is not at all easy on himself' Keith Duggan, Irish Times

Beyond the Horizon
Richard Parks has what must be one of contemporary sport's most extraordinary and inspirational stories. Soon after he turned thirty, the professional career in rugby that had been his life for over a decade was cut short by injury, leaving him faced with an uncertain future. But unlike many other young athletes, Richard decided to tackle his fears, anxiety and depression head on, taking inspiration from Ranulph Fiennes and a line from his grandmother's eulogy - "The horizon is only the limit of our sight" and setting out on challenges that have become part of his everyday life. Richard created history with his first endeavour - the 737 Challenge - by becoming the first person to conquer the highest mountain on each of the world's continents and venture to both the North and South Poles within seven months. Then in 2013 he tackled three hugely challenging events - an ultramarathon through the Peruvian jungle, the world's highest mountain bike race, and a double iron man triathlon in Snowdonia - in preparation for an even more extraordinary challenge: to record the fastest solo, unsupported and unassisted journey to the South Pole. These three challenges and the Antarctic speed record quest that saw Richard ski 11 hours a day enduring perishing conditions, broken skis and spending Christmas and New Year alone on the ice, were all filmed for a major four-part series to be broadcast on Channel 5 later this year. Beyond the Horizon is an amazing, inspiring, and exciting story for armchair adventurers, extreme sports and mountaineering fans alike.
