Turbos Wider Training Group Named

on Monday, 22 February 2016. Posted in Turbos News

Manawatu Turbos Rugby Mitre 10 Cup

Manawatu Turbos Head Coach Jeremy Cotter has named a 51 strong wider training group for 2016.

Both Cotter & new assisstant coach Rhys Archibald have opted to start the Wider Training programme sooner than in the 2015 season. As Cotter outlines the purpose of the group is to not only to work with contracted Turbos as well as fringe players during the club season it also serves as a vehicle to enhance the skill level present in Senior 1 Rugby;

"While it gives us a good chance to see if some guys have got the goods to compete at Mitre 10 Cup Level we can also help individuals lift their game and in turn the quaility of the overall club competition."

One position that will remain hotly contested will be the Turbos Hooking spot with a number of considerable canditates in the mix. Elsehwere the halfbacks are without Jamie Booth who is currently away playing for Newcastle in the United Kingdom.
