Travel tips from England Rugby players
Dealing with jet lag
To stave off jetlag, we’ll often do a spin class together as a team, to “sweat out” the flight and get the heart rate up within the first couple of hours of landing. We try to stay awake as much as possible if there’s a significant time difference, and we’re told never to nap.
Before any trip, I’ll definitely try and get as much research as I can beforehand. Make sure you know the places to go, best places to eat, and that you have a rough guide of what you want to do and how you want to do it. Besides that, it always helps to go with someone who knows the area too.
Maro Itoje, lock
If we’re travelling and want to keep our diets on track, we try to plan as much as possible, but this is usually taken into consideration when we’re away. When I’m on holiday with my family, I try to switch off a bit and give myself a break.
Owen Farrell, fly half and centre
Noise cancelling headphones are a must have on a plane, and a smoothie is always good towards the end of a flight.

Look after your skin
On a longhaul flight, I usually take a face mask as the air dries out your skin. Just remember to take if off before landing!

Catch some Z’s
Try to get a window seat and get a good book out. Go for an especially boring one if you want to get to sleep quickly.

Rugby's great nations
Founded in 1926, The Cherry Blossoms emerged as a top tier team in the last 8-10 years. After a successful campaign in their 2019 home World Cup, the whole beautiful country will still be buzzing.
