Ahead of another strong session, coach Dean said shared his excitement at getting the boys together to work on their faltering line out. With assistant Tommy 'switchback' D taking the speedy backline through their paces, some great steps were made. The young talented coaching team sorted out issues from the opening fixtures and came up with new plans to get the Lions back in the hunt.
