Yorkshire Carnegie and former Huddersfield loose head prop Ben Harris delivered an excellent scrummaging session with the First XV on 16th December. To have someone down of Ben’s calibre was great for the forwards tonight. Having such great numbers to training allowed for live scrummaging and the lads responded really well to his input.
England 2003 World Cup winning defence coach Phil Larder will be delivering a training session on Tuesday, 20th January. This will be a great boost to the squad and as players and coaches I’m sure we will take a lot out of the evening.
Indestructible hooker Ben Morrell is nearing full fitness following knee surgery. Ben has been in light training for a number of weeks now and for obvious reasons we have phasing him into training gradually. We look forward to unleashing ‘the Beast’ in the new year and it will be like signing a new player. That being said, like any player he must earn the shirt as Ross Thornton and Henry Walker are both having excellent seasons.
