Now for the Nuts & Bolts!
The end of June saw the Cornish Pirates complete their first four weeks of pre-season training – and in conditions hotter than accustomed to in recent years.
Earning a week off in the first week of July, the squad will return fresh next Monday as the focus going forward to phase two changes.
“We have had a good start to our preparations and have integrated the new players well – they are a good bunch,” comments coach Gavin Cattle.
Everyone has worked hard, under the direction mainly of Strength & Conditioning coach Greg Sammons and his team, who put a lot of planning into place.
For us the planning is important and looking ahead it is about how we peak at the right time. It’s also good that we have come through thus far with no soft tissue injuries, which is a big thing and indicates that even with the boys working hard the load is about right.
Prepared now to start phase two, Gavin added:
We are now looking forward to the next four weeks, when we will concentrate more on organisation around set piece and structural stuff – the ‘nuts and bolts’ if you like!
