We are half way through our pre season training and i am really pleased so far with the attitude and comitment from all the players involved so far.
We have had up to 50 players turn up to date including the many new signings and we still have players missing so hopefully we should be able to raise 3 teams this year.
Unfortunatly the next 4 weeks isn't going to be any easier infact i'm not going to lie it's going be tough so i hope the boys stick with it.
I believe a player that is fit will enjoy his rugby game much more and with the number of quality players we have it is going to be a real battle for positions.
The front row players are training very well with Sam & Stroudy up at Birmingham twice a week is a telling factor and Scott & Big Paul putting in real effort continuosly.
I am also impressed with our backs this year, we have some real pace out there, i used to be one of our fast guys but now i'm way down the pecking order with Liam and Joe leading the field.
We still have some of the old un's doing well with Rob Pinkers and Rich Faulkner both in there late 30's showing the youngsters they are still a force to be reckoned with and of course the old man still strutting his stuff at 50 next year but showing the young guys his never say die attitude.
We still have Pete Willetts as our club Captain and Alex Mathers has taken on the 2nd string and Holly Fritchley as our new Pyisio, a great team which i believe could take us all the way this season, that is what i would like to achieve this year and it is very possible and would justify the hard work the boys are putting in.
