Major Warwick, Warrant Officer Class 2 (WO2) Harnden and Corporals Mills, Primus and Prophet delivered two extreme high intensity sessions that pushed the Simbas physically and mentally.

They were joined in the session by BATUK’s own Captain Reeve and all involved seemed to enjoy the package.

This was the national team’s second visit to BATUK as part of their Rugby World Cup qualifying campaign. It seems to be having an effect too as so far they have recorded 4 wins from 4 and are looking good in their attempt to qualify next year’s competition
