Whilst waiting for the afternoon to start there was just a little time to get yourself a nice drink, curtesey of Green King - the club sponsor and take a few photo's.

This is the start of the giant Digital Screen installation

Kit Kelly

Introduction by Director of Operations David Kelly

It was good to put a face to a name. 

David welcomed us all to the first event of the season reminding us that it is not long now until the opening fixture against Tigers in the cup.

He also alluded to 5 ongoing ground improvement projects that will be completed by the start of the season. The only one he actually told us about was the supporters meet and greet are which was being built right now!

He hoped we would enjoy our rugby season and todays event, Kit Launch and Open Training Day.

Kit Shilly

 THE MAN - Jamie Shillcock

Shilly looking really cool as they start the warm-up period befor Omar stats his lung busting defence training session.

I can without doubt agree it looked blood hard!

Stand out for me was Hoogie, he looks in cracking shape as did Coxy and Howe(he is some quick dude)



This was some training session.

It may have been only 90minutes but it was intense, no quarter given and none expected.

By the last series of full width plays the players looked knackered but they never stopped and boy was it physical.

Great to be on the side watching.
