St Helens players pushed to their limits as they train with tyres, logs and haystacks!

St Helens players have been pushed to their limit in a winter work out with a difference.

The first team squad were up at a Cassius Camp at Silverholme in Graythwaite in the Lake District. The idea was to take the players out of their comfort zone in the build up to the 2016 Super League season.

It was different from the usual pre-season training camp as it was purposely designed to focus on the players' mental and physical wellbeing as well as teamwork.
