I must admit I was disappointed in seeing Brooks walking during the climb
Maybe if he was 110 +kg prop , you could excuse it
It would be expected for plenty of “hiking” during a mountain climb like that.
All the players would have been walking at various stages.
You’d have a lot of fast twitch fibre guys who would be very unsuited to this sort of training (and staff would be aware of it)
You run til you spew and then you run some more
All these namby pamby apologist , he has fast twitch muscles , he has an aerobic capacity /metabolism , he has an anaerobic capacity /metabolism
No reason he should have led the hill climbs or at least been in the Top 5
Tell you right now , I bet if Teddy had been there , he’d been in the Top 5 and he has fast twitch
