Is this Warriors' star Shaun Johnson’s new secret weapon?

Johnson used what looks like a big water toy in the pool with celebrity trainer Sean Hughes at Next Generation in their session last week. 

It must be doing something right as the Vodafone Warriors went on to continue their climb back up the NRL table. He played a great game against The Roosters last Sunday.

"Ahhhh successful night at recovery w/ @seanhughesfitness"

We're hoping for double the results this week with Johnson's girlfriend, Silver Fern Kayla Cullen, joining him in the recovery pool with four of the flexi toys.

"Short turn arounds mean extra time spent in the pool recovering. Not the easiest when @kaylamalvinacullen think she’s 'helping' me."


Cullen isn’t the only Silver Fern joining Hughes for pool fitness, Maria Tutaia did an aquatic work out with Beauden Barrett last week.

"If you want to be the best , you have to do the things that other people aren’t willing to do. #redefiningrecovery session @mariatutaia @beaudenbarrett #hydrotherapy #recoveryday #redefiningaquatics #waterforathletes #betterneverstops #rugby #netball"



Tutaia was fit and ready to cheer on the State of Origin last night with boyfriend, Aussie based NRL player Israel Folau.  

"Trying to take a pic with the bae... Meanwhile @slim_wit_a_tilted_grin and @tumarkinfarch trolling at the back... Ugh!!😡 Get outa here you 2!!😂"
