Cats banish off-season lull ready to tackle rivals

GYMPIE Cats seniors are back on the training field this week as they tackle the 2013 season head on.

With training every Tuesday and Thursday, coach Glenn Warren has started easing the side into what will be intense pre-season preparation.

Warren said he intended to "mix things up" when it came to training sessions this season, including places like the beach or the pool in the Cats' schedule.

He said the change in training locations and regimes would not only keep things interesting and exciting throughout the season, but would also give the club's recently flooded Six Mile Oval grounds well-needed break.

Ten players turned up to Tuesday's training run and while Warren said it was a good start, he still wants more players in the ranks.

"It's only early so it will get better," Warren said.

The Cats have two months to reach strong match fitness before their first game of the season on April 6, so Warren said he was keen to get the ball rolling as quickly as possible.
