Wallabies love nothing better than the beach



WHEN they're not training hard out at Pacific Bay Resort, the Wallabies love nothing better than a trip to the beach.

Squad members made their way down to Diggers Beach yesterday to hone their surfing skills with the East Coast Surf School, which has been showing them the ropes for the past four to five years during their visits to Coffs Harbour.

"They make the surf lessons part of their team building, training and fitness program," school proprietor Helene Enevoldson said.

"During the World Cup, their wins were rewarded with a surf at the beach. Now we've got about eight or 10 of the guys who are good surfers.

"They bring such an enormous amount of energy with them, and they're courteous to other beach users."

The fun times for the boys will continue tomorrow with a Wallabies Golf Day at Bonville International Golf Resort. Registrations start at 10.30am.

They fly out of Coffs Harbour on Friday and will reassemble for camp in Sydney on October 24, before heading off to the United Kingdom for their five-week spring tour of Europe.
