Rugby union is a game of intermittent multi-activity and multi-sprint at high-intensity. The aim of this study was investigate the fitness training specificity according to the positional difference on physical characteristics in intercollegiate rugby union players. We founded that as follows; 1. Tight forward had significant taller height and all forwards had heavier body weight and lean body mass than all backs. 2. Three-quarter back group had significant higher estimated maximum running velocity than tight-forward. 3. Tight and loose forward had significant greater momentum than all backs. 4. Tight forward had significant lower aerobic endurance than other all positional sub-groups. These results suggest that the fitness-training program must focus the positional specificity, especially reduce body fat, increase running velocity and intermittent-endurance in forwards. On the other hands, backs group must increase lean body mass and acceleration speed.
