Great turn out for for the transition yesterday.
Big welcome to the 06’s joining the P18.
The 04’s will join the seniors and I was very proud seeing 4 of our lads play with Exiles B team last weekend and look forward to seeing the other’s joining. 04’s are welcome to continue training with P18 until next season formally starts and if any are interested in coaching or helping out with the other youth teams let us know. We want to create a pathway through the club with the objective of having an Exiles B team made up players who have come through the youth section. We will also have the Malardarlan 10's which is open to the 04's and 05's.
We will carry on training until the weather breaks and will be working on fitness, strength, and speed. We will not be the biggest team next year but we can be the fittest and fastest and the best organised. Rik will taking a fitness session on Saturday 29th at 10:30 (as there is a coaches session planned by the club) and as he pointed out you all need to be fit and strong before the season starts. This will make you less prone to injury and make us more competitive in tournaments. Individually you all need to increase your strength so join a gym, if you haven't already.
I would also like you all to try for the Junior Vikings and on the 5th November we will go through speed and bronco tests so you can all see where you are and what times you need to target.
Brad is arranging trips abroad for next year and more details will follow. This will allow us to play more rugby and test ourselves against other countries.
Don't be afraid to ask questions if you don't understand anything and introduce yourselves to me if we have not met before. Try and watch rugby on youtube or other platforms. At the moment there is the women's world cup and after the autumn internationals. Also try and follow international players playing in the same positions as you.
I look forward to training you next year!
