James Webster is set to have a near fully fit squad at his disposal when the 2015 squad report for the start of pre-season training at the end of the month.
Head physio Simon Wray confirmed Danny Kirmond (knee & fingers), Nick Scruton (thumb) and Matt Ryan (shoulder) are all well on track with their rehabilitation programmes and will start pre-season with the remainder of the squad.
The only member of the squad who won’t be fit for the start of pre-season is forward, Kyle Trout. The Academy product has had an operation on his hip which will rule him out of taking part in full training until mid-December.
New signings Craig Hall, Mickael Simon, Lopini Paea, Matty Ashurst and Chris Riley will all report to the Rapid Solicitors Stadium with the remainder of the squad for two days of testing at the end of October before pre-season begins in earnest in the first week in November.
The squad will embark on two training camps in Wales, the first taking place in December at the Vale of Glamorgan in south Wales. The resort, which is set in 650 acres of glorious Welsh countryside, has played host to the Welsh rugby union team during their many Six Nations triumphs in recent years, in addition to Cardiff Blues RUFC and Wales’ second biggest football club, Cardiff City.
The resort boasts six full size football/rugby pitches, one of which is 3G European standard, three half-size pitches and an indoor training pitch.
In January the squad will again head to Wales, this time to Eirias Park in north Wales for a two-day camp less than a month out from the start of the new campaign.
