In this week's Principality Welsh Rugby Union Podcast, the season kicks off in the Principality Premiership.
We hear from several of the clubs, including Paul Moriarty of Cardiff, Mark Ring of Cross Keys and Kristian Loader of Ebbw Vale, along with plenty of others.
We also here from Leigh Halfpenny about whether he will be fit to start the season, while in our series of nutrition advice for the club player WRU national squads nutritionist John Williams debunks a few myths.
Nearly 40 players were involved in the first Wales Under 18 training session of the season. WRU National Performance Manager Gethin Watts is excited at the potential shown by the group and expects the Regional Under 18 Championship to hone their skills even further.
