It was a training somewhat out of the ordinary for the Sharks NRL group earlier today, with team building the order of the day.
The boys assembled at Sharks headquarters before sun-up, were put into groups and departed for all parts of the Shire as they completed a range of set tasks.
The six man teams then greeted commuters at local railway stations, before hopping on trains then taking ‘selfies’ outside the premises of a number of Sharks sponsors such as Stewart Toyota, Little Ceasars at Miranda and Woolworths.
They then made their way back to North Cronulla Surf Club for an arduous team cardio challenge involving the stationary bike and rowing machine, before jumping in the pool for the 2017 Sharks Swimming Carnival.
While nobody amongst the playing group were likely to push for place in the Australian Olympic swim team, there were some standouts, with youngsters Jesse Ramien and Ryan King amongst those to excel in the pool.
However, once the scores were tallied, it was the ‘yellow’ team led by Luke Lewis who managed to come out on top.
Lewis’s team, which included Kurt Capewell, new recruits Matt Moylan and Braden Uele, young forward Brock Ilett and big outside back Josh Tuilagi, proved to be the most consistent throughout the day and came away worthy winners.
The Sharks NRL group now take a break, before returning to training in the second week of January.
