XV-landslagssamling i Oslo

Årets første treningssamling for XV herrer i Oslo

Helgen 20.-21. februar hadde herrelandslaget XV sin første samling i Oslo. Dette ble også debuten for den nye landslagstreneren Nathan Cummins. Omentrent 40 spillere fra alle 6 XV-klubbene møtte opp og trosset snøværet i Oslo. Lørdag besto av øvelser og fitness, før det ble kampspill på søndag, da været hadde bedret seg noe. Spillerne fikk også prøve det nye draktsettet fra Macron i løpet av helgen.

Takk til Mattias Lindqvist for videoproduksjon:

This past weekend the men´s XV squad had their first training camp before the upcoming games. It´s was also the first training for newly appoited head coach Nathan Cummins. Oslo offered a partly cloude and snowy saturday with alot of hard work from around 40guys, from all 6clubs. Saturday was they guys going through drills and a fitness session before sunday putting it together for a trial game. Sunday offered a bit better weather with even the sun coming out for a bit. They were also presented to the new kit and clothing from Macron during the weekend. All in all a good solid performance and a good build up for the future.

Thanks to Mattias Lindqvist for the video:
