Wolves Meet Tigers
The next stop for the Wolves' management team on their tour of NRL clubs was fullback Brett Hodgson's former club Wests Tigers.
Dave Hutchinson, Wolves' sales and marketing controller, explains all.
"Wests Tigers are based at Concord Oval, where both their offices and extensive training facilities are. Firstly we bumped into former Tiger turned Wolf, Brett Hodgson (left) who was catching up with some of his old friends, and amongst the guys training in the gym were England players Gareth Ellis and Chris Heighington.
"The gym is split into two areas with a traditional weights area but also an ‘altitude chamber' in which all players workout at a reduced oxygen level, simulating at altitude training.
"Again as we are commonly observing that a purpose-built rehab area is an essential part of an elite team's facility and the Wests are no exception with hot and cold spa pools on hand to alternate post training.
"On the administration side of the club we met CEO Steve Humphries, General Manager, Finance and Business Services David Nissen, Recruitment Manager Warren McDonnell and General Manager Sales & Marketing Brett Clarke, and were given a thorough insight into the running of their club followed by watching the first team squad contact training (pictured right) in the hands of head coach Tim Sheens who was drilling players from a position of referee in the centre of the paddock."
Sales and Marketing Controller
The team also paid a visit to Body Science International Pty Ltd.
"We visited the home of BSc who have been supplying the team out in Australia with supplements and their support has been fantastic. We presented a Wolves jersey to them and it was timed to perfection as New Zealand international and Souths forward Roy Asotasi turned up and couldn't resist a photo opportunity!"
