As a coach with strength and power athletes (rugby, track) I was wondering what incorporating WOD as general prep work together with the athletes 'other training' was like. Other training being more specific to event/game.

I think the general rule is you use the WOD for General Physical Preparedness, and use practice itself (e.g. rugby passing drills, scrum drills, shot throwing, etc.) for event specific fitness and motor skills.

As a coach the WOD is great for conditioning. Skills should be taught and practiced while the athletes are fresh/ Then you can have an intense period of conditioning at the end.
