S1 E1: The squad assembles for the start of pre-season training, and viewers witness the large volume of strength and conditioning the squad goes through in order to prepare for a brutal year on the paddock. The day to day operations team at the Waratahs organisation ensures that on and off field opportunities are taken. The culmination of the pre-season grind is the round one clash with the The Rebels – Australia’s newest professional rugby team – at AAMI Park. The Waratahs are hot favourites, but a hostile welcome awaits them and much work must be done if they are to kick-off their season with the result they are striving for. Also featured in Episode 1, Kurtley Beale conducts a kicking clinic, Drew Mitchell leads a youtube revolution and the team visits The Rugby Club television show in Melbourne.
