Moama’s pre-season kicks off

By Andrew Johnston

IT'S never too early to kick off pre-season training.

And a re-building Moama has set the challenge to its players.

Riv photographer Cath Grey snapped a number of Moama players carrying a large tyre at the back of Jack Eddy Oval on Saturday.

It was just one component of an obstacle course around town.

“We had the boys out taking part in a few different challenges,” coach Luke Eldridge said.

“There were some hill runs, a bit of swimming, pushing utes around and the tyre carry well among other things.

“It's a good way to start because, as well as the physical challenge, there is a lot of team work involved in getting through the course, so its fantastic for team building.”

The early stages of pre-season have already produced strong results for Moama, with Eldridge complementing the endeavor of his players.

“We've had a really good turn out so far,” he said.

“It's good to have guys come in and put in the effort early. You can tell with a lot of our players that they haven't stopped working since the end of the season.

“They've put in the effort away from the club and are coming back in really good shape. It shows a commitment to being a better team and I'm really impressed. Hopefully it shows throughout the remainder of the pre-season.”
