The majority of the Waratahs’ Wallabies players reported back for club duty today, a week earlier than required.

But there was no easing into things for the internationals, who joined the rest of the squad for a skills session before enduring a hill running session.

Eight of the 12 touring Wallabies cut their well earned break off early to get back to training. And with the first pre-season trial match now just four weeks away, coach Michael Cheika wasted no time in getting them back into training as quickly as possible.

One of those to impress was new recruit Michael Hooper, who together with Berrick Barnes, led the field through the gruelling hill session.

“Today was a great start,” said Hooper, after the session. ‘It was great to meet the boys and the new coach and players, really good fun.

“The squad is in really great shape. There’s already a good culture here, everyone seems to be enjoying themselves and working hard and I’m really enjoying being a part of it.”

With the rest of the squad well into pre-season preparations, the team’s 12 touring Wallabies will undertake a separate training program for the next two weeks, designed to fast-track their return to the squad ahead of the Investec Super Rugby trial matches that start in just four weeks’ time.
