How has the training been going?

Training has been fairly minimal, the team was picked quite late and a lot of the players are either on EUC teams or living abroad so we only got the chance to train twice. There’s a decent core of players from the 2013 team though so we only needed to get about half the squad up to speed on how we like to play.

Tough training over the winter for an event so early in the season. Winter sand, wet, cold!?
