Senior Rugby Team pre-season training at Aspire Centre.

Written by DaraMacNamara on . Posted in Featured, General News, Sports News, Students' Blog

On the 9th of September Mr. Bunting, Brian Smyth and Mark Sutton (Senior team coaches) brought 24 members of the Senior Rugby Team on a pre-season training camp down to the Aspire Centre in Co. Offaly. The agenda for the players was to spend a weekend together building team spirit while honing their rugby skills before their first match against Blackrock due for the following Wednesday. Great craic was had in the various activities (such as “the blind hike”, raft-building, obstacle course and human foosball, amongst many others), but the players also got to do some more serious work such as their gym and pitch sessions throughout the weekend. Joe and the staff down at Aspire were very impressed with the attitude and application of the Mount Temple lads and wished them all the best with the upcoming season.
