Gym goers surprised by rugby superstars

Regular gym goers rubbed shoulders with superstars of the rugby world on the Albany campus this week.

About 15 members of the Australia team rocked up to the Recreation Centre for a workout.

They spent an hour training in the gym in the run up to their semi-finals match with the All Blacks on Sunday.

Players included centre Digby Ioane, winger James O’Connor, lock Nathan Sharp, prop Salesi Ma’afu and flanker Rocky Elsom.

The players then went for a post-workout drink in the Scholars Café.

They were accompanied by conditioning coach Peter Harding.

Recreation Centre manager Rod Grove says the players were relaxed and chatted to staff and students.

“It was a nice surprise for our clients,” he says. “You don’t get chance to work out next to an international rugby star everyday.”
