Cummins discusses pre-season

Key Quotes

On the action in the first session…

“It was good to get a grip of the session and see how they went. We need to be careful what we do on the first day back, so we aren’t going to throw everything at them just yet. We got some nice skill from the boys and started off with a really nice session."

On the upcoming training sessions…

“We’re in a phase now where the lads have had four or five weeks off. We need to get their bodies back in condition for contact training. We’ve done little contact today, we’ll bring a bit of that back towards the end of the week, and then in a couple of weeks it’ll be as hard as it gets. There’s no doubt there’ll be some tough days in the office!”

On first impressions…

“I was impressed. There’s no doubt that the tough year last year has motivated them to do better this season, and they made a great start today.”
