With the first game of the season just over two weeks away, the Rotherham Titans players have been working hard in pre-season to get match fit.
For the entirety of Tuesday, we took a 130 mile trip from our head office in Worcester to meet up with the squad for a training day – prepped circuits & drills at the gym in the morning before heading out on to the field in the afternoon. Freshly clad in brand new Scimitar training kit, feedback from the players on the leisurewear and the playing kit so far has been excellent, and we’re delighted to receive such glowing praise.
So, what happened on the day? Well, the Titans began the morning working strict circuits in the Iron Athlete gym – a superb setup just 1.3 miles from Clifton Lane. Overseen by Muaz Buaben (the Rotherham Titans Strength & Fitness Coach), the Titans worked for a couple of hours before heading back to the ground for a nutritious, carefully planned lunch.
In the afternoon, we were there to see the Titans put through their paces both in terms of mental & physical strength in front of the coaches. A back row & front row split took place after a lengthy cardio stint, where the boys ran a series of agility, ball carrying, tackling & recovery drills. Pre-season is never easy, and you could see the determination and grit on all of the players as they looked to impress.
As the Titans conclude pre-season training, a true test awaits on Saturday with what’s likely to be a full strength Newcastle Falcons side. If you’re likely to be in the area, kick off is at 4:30pm and you can purchase tickets here.
