Yesterday we had our registration and Open Day down at Heywood Road. After we all watched the Lions beat The All Blacks over a hot breakfast, the children got their kit on and trained out on the pitch. The new community Coach Andy Hughes went around and introduced himself to the players and coaches and had a chat about plans and objectives for the season.
Under 15’s forward Matt, they had some fun during the session and the players helped them work on lifting in the lineouts. Having such talented players take time out during the off season was really helpful to the team.
Under 14’s Lock Quinn, said that having new signing Harvey Derby and club favourite Joe “Donut” Kelly was absolutely brilliant. Having them work on lineout throws, controlling the ball at the base of the scrum was a great session.
