The Blues have kicked off their Super Rugby pre-season preparation at an Auckland beach and have some unique photos to prove it.
The squad went for a lung-busting sand dune run at Kariotahi Beach on the west coast
The training session had players on their hands and knees but there was also a moment to smile about with the squad photobombing a wedding photo shoot on the beach.
Players and staff were happy to surround the couple for a few photos before resuming their run along the black sand beach.
The 2020 Super Rugby competition will kick off with the Blues taking on the Chiefs on the 31st of next month.
