    Stone said players would return from their end-of-season break next Thursday to be assessed and to begin orientation and induction.
    -Those that have adhered to their off-season strength and conditioning programs will be allowed to enjoy another break, until November 14.
    -Those who haven't will particpate in daily fitness sessions
    -Bennett begins training with them on November 28th
    -Wayne has done this at his two previous clubs

    Cool, This will seperate the men from the boys early on. Theyre on good coin to perform at the highest level and if they want it bad enough, EVERYONE should be having a holiday untill November 14. :)

    Or they could be having a holiday untill November 14, but they want it so bad that they train through their holidays :D

    Not going through the rugby league regime of course but if I had the chance for a week off through the season for my sport I'd be working my butt off too.

    These players have had a month and a half off, and we all know time goes quick.

    True it will seperate the boys from the men but I like the idea Bennett wont be there. No pressure from his early.

    There is no such think as a holiday for these blokes. Most of them can be seen training non stop through the off season. Houston among others is in the gym as we speak and others can be seen clocking the miles up on the road.

    Yeah it's not like they sit around and watch TV all day. Most likely it'll be going out, travelling, catching up with mates. Many probably fit in jogging/walking/cycling/surfing and light weights during this time.

    I heard Johnny Willkinson used to train his goalkicking everyday...even Christmas and such. So that's all on top of his usual rugby training (although he probably didn't do any other training sessions, would explain his game)
