‘Light’ training in the heat

By Deniliquin Pastoral Times

The Deniliquin Rams resume pre-season training next week in preparation for the 2019 Murray Football League season.

The players return to the track next Tuesday at 6pm at the Hardinge St oval and will train each Tuesday and Thursday.

Rams co-coach Sam Hall said all past, present and prospective players are welcome.

He also said with next week’s weather expected to top the 40 degree mark players can expect a “pretty light week” on the track.

“We’re aware that it’s going to be hot so we’ll take it pretty easy and ease blokes back into it. We’ll most likely incorporate a swim in the river as well.

“We just want blokes to get there from day one and commit to the pre-season no matter what level of fitness they’re at.”

The club has also locked in its pre-season practice matches and a training camp.

“We’ll hold an overnight training camp on Friday, February 1 where we’ll train for a couple of hours that night and a couple of hours in the morning; these camps are always a bit of fun and good for team bonding,” Hall said.

The club has four practice matches as follows: Saturday, March 2 v Doveton in Deni; Thursday, March 7 v Blighty in Deni; Saturday, March 16 v Barham in Barham; Saturday, March 23 v Billabong Crows in Deni.
