In speaking to one of the senior players I know they are getting absolutely flogged on the track. Moreso than any previous years with both running and contested work.
So if they gassed out there it’s to be expected, and a good thing as would likely be doing more running than in a game.
Stringer you want to be getting pushed hard and being spent again a good thing. You know he giving it his all. Only way to build fitness up.
Don’t think anyone expects him to be an endurance type player anyway however.
