We have completed the 2nd stage of our 4 stage preparation. The key focus of the 2nd stage was to continue pushing our physical conditioning, while introducing more rugby development.
We had our first pre-season game against Canon where we played a large number of our squad members. This was a good early introduction for players to get valuable game time and to understand areas individuals and the team need to work on. Our goal pre-season is to give players opportunity to develop and push for selection for Top League. The stronger we can build our squad, the better prepared we will be for round 1.
Our next stage will see an increase in rugby development, with games against Shimizu, Honda and Ricoh. This stage is important for both the players and the team, before we move to the 4th and final part of our development in December.
While we understand it is a difficult time with Covid-19, as a team we are well aware of the tremendous encouragement we are receiving from our supporters.
Thank you all for your support. Stay safe and healthy.
