Warriors squad train at Malvern College

The complete Worcester Warriors playing squad trained at Malvern College last week as the club battled to beat the wintery weather!

The indoor facilities provided by the College enabled Richard Hill and his squad of players to carry out the planned mid-week training day in spite of the conditions outside.

Players worked in groups and, under the watchful eye of Richard Hill, Nigel Redman and Conditioning & Fitness Coach Stuart Pickering, tested their fitness with rounds of water polo, quick cricket and basketball in sessions led by the College staff. 

Not many school rugby players have lunch with their sporting heroes and it was an exciting day for the school's best rugby prospects that were able to meet the Warriors players in an informal setting. 

The partnership between Worcester Warriors and Malvern College is a strong one, and eight of the College players are talented enough to play in the Elite Player Development Group (EPDG).

Nick Tisdale, Rugby Master at Malvern College, said: “Sport remains a key part of the education offered at Malvern and these boys may even find their careers heading in the direction of Rugby Union. Our thanks go to the Warriors squad for their professionalism and their approachability.

Head Coach Richard Hill said: “We are proud of our close relationship with Malvern College and thank them for allowing us to use their fantastic indoor facilities during the wintery weather. It was great that so many young hopeful players were also able to meet the Warriors and we look forward to returning again in the near future.”
