Pre-season training is well underway at Worcester Warriors as all the players return to Sixways Stadium and step up preparations ahead of the new Guinness Premiership season.
To give supporters a special insight into life 'Inside the Warrior Camp' we will be running a series of special training blogs from different players as the big countdown continues.
Today we hear from lock Will Bowley....
"Nice to be back after a little freshen up from an extended weekend. I used it to catch up with an old face - Ben Gotting. You'll be pleased to know he is very well and looking forward to getting himself back into the Guinness Premiership.
As far as we're going the boys are putting some quality rugby training in as it's a bit of a lighter week. Players like Olivier Sourgens and Adam Black are fitting in nicely - even if the French-English and Welsh-English language barrier sometimes gets in the way!!
We have a team activity afternoon tomorrow (Friday) which should be good fun and worthwhile so we can all get that important bonding in.
Next week it's back to the grindstone on the final stretch of pre-season and I'm certainly looking forward to getting back out there for some good old rugby!
Premiership Rugby today announced an extension of their partnership with the UK's largest insurance company, Aviva, for a further three years. The contract extension, which starts in the 2014-15 season, will cover a golden era for club rugby in England and will include a period when the country will host a Rugby World Cup and when rugby union will finally rejoin the Olympic movement.
Not only are the great and the good of the Aviva Premiership Rugby strutting their stuff at Twickenham this Saturday - so are the new generation of rugby players, including Worcester RFC, courtesy of the Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup.
Warrior Stuart Brooks will represent the club at Twickenham next weekend as he battles for the honour of carrying the coveted Aviva Premiership Rugby trophy onto the pitch ahead of the final between Leicester Tigers and Northampton Saints.
