Wolves Meet Life Saver Crew
The Warrington Wolves squad joined the Westpac Life Saver Helicopter Rescue crew at Maroubra Beach for an intense training session, Aussie style, earlier this week.
The Westpac Life Saver crew put the Wolves through a rigorous endurance test starting with a 2km beach run including push-ups and sit ups. The Wolves then showed the locals their swimming ability with an ocean swim in rough conditions combined with a beach sprint, each of them needing to complete the course twice. The players were then split into two groups to complete a swim and run relay.
During the afternoon the Wolves joined the crew for a tour of the Westpac Life Saver base, a presentation highlighting the important emergency service work undertaken by the crew and a winch simulation so they could see how someone is rescued. The day ended with traditional Aussie BBQ.
