Hi F5
What you are doing is great but you will need to add in balance work and speed training which challenges your directional stability. You need to know that you can do everything you will be faced with in a rugby match before you are in one.

Execise the stabilising muscles of your knee, called vastus medialis muscle.Turn your foot to the outside, and slowly straighten your leg unttil full extention. Keep it there and slowly bend it down again. slow and controlled movement is the secret. if it is too easy, put a weight on your ankle and repeat. It doesnot help to exercise hammies and forget about quats!
