Very positive news. I didn't get the impression that the players were as fit as they could have been last season.

Wonder if we will see us look any fitter than the part time teams we play against in the pub league since we haven't for the last 5 years or so.
I'm sure the happy clappers will reason that all the teams are now full time, with millions invested in fitness programmes etc zzzz
