An exercise to test agility, quickness and fluidity of movement, this forms part of a fitness testing session put together by John Dams, Harlequins head of strength and conditioning. The 3 cone test was originally used by NFL players, but is now being widely used in rugby.

QUINS WIN SEES TOP FOUR CEMENTED Hobart Harlequins remain second in the Tasmanian Rugby premiership table, despite clocking off early in an inconsistent 38-10 win over AMC Vikings at Rugby Park on Saturday. Quins led 28-0 at half-time and only scored from 95 metres on full-time to level the second half scoring.
Tom Croft and Mathew Tait scored a try each in the Aviva Premiership semi-final win over Harlequins but as important were their try-saving tackles during the first half.
Tom Croft played a key role in Leicester Tigers’ 33-16 Aviva Premiership semifinal win over Harlequins at the weekend, scoring a great try and making a very impressive try-saving tackle. They will face Northampton Saints in the final on May 25th. Croft spent a large part of the season out recovering from a serious neck injury, but this year has returned strong, showing the kind of form that excited fans when he first came onto the scene.
