The South Sydney Rabbitohs conquered one of the natural wonders of the world, in the form of the Grand Canyon as part of their high altitude training camp in Arizona, USA.

The eight hour, 26 kilometre trek through the steep Canyon saw the squad tested both physically and mentally in what is sure to rank as one of their biggest tests of the pre-season.

Prop-forward, Luke Burgess, caught up with teammates following the challenge to get their perspective on the trek including Ben Lowe.

“It was a great experience – something that you should tick off on your bucket list once,” said Lowe.

“To go down and up in one day was pretty special with the boys. A few tender spots after the Grand Canyon it’s fair to say.

“But look it was a great experience and I’m looking forward to the rest of the camp.”
