It may be summer, but Josh Beaumont, Will Addison & Mike Haley just can't keep away and have been getting themselves ready for pre-season in the gym!
Speaking after their hard training session, we asked Will how his summer was going so far: "Yeah it's going really well thanks, I am really enjoying the time off. I haven't been anywhere so far, but I've actually done some work experience at St George's Park, which was really interesting."
He revealed that he's looking forward to next season to begin: "I'm desperate to play again! Due to injuries I didn't play too much last season, so I can't wait to start playing for the first team at the AJ Bell. I am dreading pre-season though!"
Beaumont revealed he is off to Spain for a few weeks with friends from home. He spoke about his time with the England camp: "It was a great experience. I was pleased with my second half performance, and was elated to score a try. I was standing on the wing, and scored from a great bit of skill from Shane Geraghty!"
He is also looking forward to working with Peter Stringer and Bryn Evans: "Stringer has been there and done it, and won the Heineken Cup with Munster so he should add a great deal to the club. Bryn is an experienced player, whose captained London Irish. The lads from Irish say he's a good skilful player so I'm looking forward to working with him."
Haley spoke about how he was enjoying his summer, and although he had nothing planned, he was hoping to go away somewhere. He is looking forward for the season to start again: "I cannot wait to get underway in the Kings of the North tournament. I want to try and pick up the form from where I left off last season and get better."
He admitted that he doesn't mind coming back for pre-season, run by Head of Performance Adam Grainger: "It (Pre Season) actually gives me something to do, so I'm weirdly looking forward to it begin in a few weeks time!" he laughed.
Mike spoke of his excitement of playing with scrum half Stringer: "He will bring bags of experience to the side, so hopefully I will learn a lot of him."
