Liam Farrell described a pre-season trip to the home of F1 giants Red Bull as “an eye-opener”.

The Warriors’ four-day training camp culminated with a visit of their Milton Keynes head-quarters yesterday.

And forward Farrell said: “We thought we went into a lot of detail, but they take it to a different level - it’s literally down to the tiniest screw and bolt.

“You have 800 staff all dedicated to two cars on race-day and all working towards the same goal – I feel really fortunate we got the chance to go.”

Their four-day trip combined fitness and skills sessions with team-building exercises and experiences.

Farrell says new recruits Jarrod Sammut and Joe Bullock are settling in.

“Joe has been in since pre-season started on day one and he is keeping his head down and working hard, and making a bit of a name for himself,” he said.

“He’s pushing for a place in the side.

“And Jarrod only came in last weekend so he’s still finding his feet a bit, but he’ll bring something different to the squad, as well as some experience.”

Another new face is, of course, coach Adrian Lam.

“He’s got his own way of doing thing and he’s got everyone thinking differently,” added Farrell. “There’s new terminology and new things to learn, it’s been good.”

Fringe halfback Josh Woods has been at the training camp despite persistent rumours linking him with a loan move to Leigh.
