This study was to investigate how a group of four rugby union coaches could utilise collaborative action research (CAR) to develop and implement a pedagogical framework to assist players' transition from 15-a-side to 7-a-side rugby. The pedagogical framework developed, consisted of six constructs that included clarity of rugby sevens strategies and structures; specific micro-skill development; high-speed running games; replication of match scenarios; rugby contact activities; and the use of technology. As a group of coaches, we collaboratively designed, implemented, and developed the pedagogical framework over three action research cycles.
