The DHL Stormers returned to official training today at the HPC (High Performance Centre) and immediately underwent post festive-season fitness tests.
“The bulk of the players tested exceptionally well against the fitness and conditioning targets set for own training over the festive season, with a number exceeding the targets set.” said fitness and conditioning coach Stephan Du Toit. “Overall we were very pleased with the progress made by the group. Competition for places is tough and the boys are pushing each other hard. You can see that despite the time off the players trained hard.”
The players now embark on a pre-season rugby specific and “spanbou” training camp in Hermanus.
The DHL Stormers will host an open session on Wednesday at 10h00 at the Hermanus Primary School. The team will train and then host a signing session. All are welcome to attend.
