WALLSEND Eagles Rugby League Club took advantage of nearby Tynemouth Long Sands to keep their pre-season preparations under way when tempratures hit sub-zero last week.

Players aged from seven to 15 were present and were put through their paces by the coaches in both fitness and skill based drills.

The club are still on the lookout for players for the upcoming summer season, which starts in March.

Training and games are played on Saturday mornings and new players are welcome to call in whether they have played rugby before or not.
