In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Academy Strength & Conditioning Coach at Arsenal Football Club, Paudie Roche.  Unlike other part 2's I have done in the past, this one with Paudie comes only weeks after part 1 because of the response we both had on the back of that. This part 2 is a little different, however. Paudie was kind enough to put a tweet out and ask for questions which listeners wanted answering, so this episode is a Q&A based on listener questions.

Pacey Performance Podcast #223 - Peter Tierney & Joe McGinley (Sports Scientist at Leinster Rugby and Head of Academy S&C at Leinster Rugby)

January 17, 2019

In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Sports Scientist at Leinster Rugby, Peter Tierney and Head of Academy Strength & Conditioning at Leinster Rugby, Joe McGinley. These guys serve up a really interesting chat in this episode, mainly around the push and pull scenario between the long term development of a player and the short term need for them to be ready if called upon by the seniors. Also mixed in with that is the need for young athletes to be training at similar intensities to senior players so they are ready to go if/when they get the shout. There is so much to manage in this area and Pete and Joe give an amazing insight into how they do it at Leinster Rugby. I hope you enjoy this episode with Peter Tierney & Joe McGinley.

  • Who are Peter Tierney & Joe McGinley (education, background, current role)
  • Balancing long term development with short term readiness
  • Building relationships with staff to aid player development
  • Building individual player development plans
