According to the Guardian:

Pre-season will include a training camp in the new year but while previous seasons have seen them travel to the likes of Portugal and Tenerife, they will be based in the UK this time around.


Not sure if this is cost-saving or a change of training strategy. I'd like to think it's the latter. Although warm-weather training has it's benefits for skills work, I think a week of graft in the hard, wet cold at army camps and such, would be more beneficial for hardening us up. The last time we did this was prior to the 2018 season. That team was actually pretty decent at hanging in and grinding out wins, it just lacked any attacking talent or game-tactics (we were promised they would follow the year after).

Let's hope it takes us back to basics and shakes off any hangover of failure from the last few years. At least we're doing something different. For a fan, there's nothing worse than seeing Instagram shots of cappuccino's on the balcony of a spa resort in Tenerife, followed by an embarrassing thumping at the hands of a 'lesser' team in a semi-final a few months later. Harsh, but that's the way the fans will see it (just IMO our course). I'm not sure how Powell ran pre-season camps at Cas, but with money being tight I guess he managed to somehow get them playing attractive rugby without the luxury week in the sun?

Cas regularly went to Lanzarote for a training camp (including before their 2017 season) as do many clubs who have won Grand Finals. I think its probably too simplistic to look at previous Warrington pre season training camps abroad and tie that to unsuccessful campaigns. No reason of course why you couldn't do an 'army style' preseason camp as well as a Lanzarote trip, what is important is to get he best out of whatever you are doing and getting the players bought in to a way of playing the game that will bring success.

It must be in the new coach handbook.

I thought it was just the 2018 season, but seems Price did it two years running. Obviously didn't fix our problems.

In that case, I guess it's more of a cost-saving measure by the club. More money in the kitty for a mid-season transfer of an extra prop maybe :PRAY:

Could be just a sign of the times and potentially worried about any future lockdowns or travel restrictions

We don't need to go abroad to honest, get used to playing in the weather you'll be playing in for the first few months of the season. Also we have the indoor facility on the chester campus for Skill session and other stuff, so again the trip abroad to get out the rain and colder weather isn't needed.

I wouldn't have thought the venue for a preseason training camp has anything to do with club finances. This will surely just be a decision by Powell that it's how he wants to do things this year. It will fit in with how he wants to run the whole of preseason training with a view to getting the best out of his squad.

Bit of hard love might be the way to go for a squad that is perceived to have a soft centre, especially in the mental aspect of the game.

Whisking them off to warmer parts of the world, when in the middle of a British winter, could easily be perceived as pandering to a group who have barely earned the right to such treats?
And so you aim towards the sky,
And you'll rise high today,
Fly away, Far away,
Far from pain....

I don't really care what they do for preseason so long as they get to the first game physically and mentally ready. Not at all like last year when we were humbled and realistically well beaten by Cas.
