Sheffield Eagles players stepped into the boxing ring as they added a punch to pre-season training.
The players’ final session before a festive break was at the Ingle family’s Wincobank gym last night which has been the home to champion boxers.
The rugby players tackled boxing training routines before pulling on the gloves for a sparring session.
“We thought we would try something different before Christmas and Dominic Ingle kindly offered to open up the gym and take the lads for a session,” said Dave Hembrough, Eagles first team strength and conditioning coach.
“Some of the boxers from the Ingle camp were there to help.”
