    Below is a copy of the press release from Warrington Wolves.

    Wolves have Tunnel Vision

    Wolves still on course in both the league and cup at the midway point in the season.

    Warrington Wolves are sitting in second place in the Stobart Super League and are in the semi-finals of the Carnegie Challenge Cup with their sights still firmly set on both competitions.

    The team started their week’s preparation ahead of this year’s Magic Weekend derby with Widnes Vikings by taking in a training session underground.

    Local company CSTS proudly sponsor Wolves’ star Simon Grix and this week invited the squad to their offices for a training activity.

    The company is a specialist provider of health, safety & environmental education as well as a specialist in confined space training and support.

    The squad were given a safety briefing before getting kitted out in the suits, hard hats, boots and helmets, running through the use of the safety equipment and breathing apparatus. The players took part in two exercises within the confined space of a tunnel underground. Firstly they rescued a dummy on a stretcher before working as a team to retrieve and construct a rescue tripod.

    Gordon Lyon, managing director of CSTS, said: “I think they were quite nervous when they turned up, maybe more so than at the beginning of a match. When they came out having done the exercise, many of them had realised it wasn’t as easy as they first thought but not as scary either. I think they’ll learn many things from it and will have learnt that there are strenuous things in the work place that people don’t normally see. This is the first time we’ve run a session with a sports team. We’ve done similar activities with the fire brigade and police as they are often expected to work in that type of environment in the event of an emergency.”

    He added about the ongoing partnership with the club: “I think having been a sponsor for a number of years, specifically with Simon, has given the business a focus in the Warrington area. We work all over the country but all the people we work with are aware of our relationship with Warrington and it’s our way of giving a little bit back to the local community with involvement for all the staff. It’s a good way for any business to be involved with the community and particularly with sport in the local area.”

    The players all embraced the challenge and prop Garreth Carvell enjoyed the different training experience.  

    “It was really good. It made a change from a swim the day after a game. It was a little bit scary though; dark tunnels, a bit damp and smelly but over all it was enjoyable. Ben Westwood was as usual on fire keeping the dummy we had to rescue in good spirits talking to him, making sure he was okay!

    “It was a good way to realise what other jobs entail, going down rescuing people; it was good to see a different walk of life. We’ve done a few of these team bonding sessions now and I feel they help. It breaks the sessions up  and you get to have a laugh with the boys. It’s great working together and having a giggle along the way.”

    Adding to this Karl Fitzpatrick, Wolves’ football manager, said: “It was quite a challenging environment, and was really good for team morale helping to freshen things up a bit, differing from the normal routine. It’s good to have these days every now and again. We have a strong team ethic coming through the club, all working together and pulling in the right direction.

    “CSTS are a high performance team in their own right and we were glad to be able to gain them some exposure and share some of the team work ethics with them. Many of the players overcome some personal fears during the session and worked well together, communicating out of their comfort zone, challenging themselves in a new environment and the team came through it really well.”
