Worcester and the surrounding area is very much like a larger version of my native Scottish Borders so I do feel very at home here already.
Many of you will be shaking your heads that since arriving I am already on the injury list since breaking my thumb in the last pre-season game versus Ulster Rugby. No one is more disappointed about this than myself. There is a tangible air of excitement amongst the squad about the new season and what can be achieved - that is something I want to be part of. The operation to wire it has gone well, according to the surgeon, and I will be back in the mix for selection in a month.
Finally, the Fine Committee have invested in a table tennis table for the team room which appears to be a hit amongst the boys. I haven't played yet... but as long as I'm better than Jack Gilding's performances to date I'll sleep easy!!
Cheers, Calum MacRae
