Maybe we do preventative surgery. Replace all shoulders with metal alloy frames, and all leg tendons with some kind of unbreakable rubber.

Some snippets on todays training effort. Trac has turned up and trained with no discomfort evidently. There has been no report on Fritsch who Trac buried in the tackling drills other than he got up and looked okay. Training seems to be more physical orientated this year.. Trac Salem Oliver Brayshaw all having increased leg speed going by some track watchers. Pretty much it so far.

Um what
What a load of horse shit haha.
I mean it's possible to physically train to increase speed and power. But at the elite level you might get a 2% increase because of diminishing returns and how some punter notices that from the sideline I dunno.

More likely the coaches are just asking them to use the pace they always had out of stoppages instead of handballing 1m to a flat footed team mate instantly.

They've been back for pre season for like 2 weeks. If they are noticeably faster in 2 weeks of training then Misso must have been running them around with leg weights.
