The boys from Carlton Football Club took their intense pre-season training to the beach for a spot of sunshine and water recovery on the Sunshine Coast.
Blues players headed out to sunny Mooloolaba Beach on Queensland’s coast to frolic on the sand and wrestle in the surf to celebrate the off-season on Sunday afternoon.
After an intense training session at Maroochydore Multisports Complex, the boys looked ready to wind down and enjoy a well-earned dip on the popular tourist beach.

Footballers Charlie Cunrow, Patrick Cripps and Jack Silvagni set tongues wagging with their ripped physiques as they took to the water for light activities and recovery.
Meanwhile, tattooed hunks Cam O’Shea, Aaron Mullett and Liam Jones showed off their impressive ink in revealing budgly smugglers.
Newly drafted player Cameron O’Shea also offered a peak of his wealth of tattoos which are scrawled across his chest and both of his arms.

Their cheeky ocean dip marks the start of pre-season training for the Carlton players, who need to be in top form for the start of the 2018 season in March next year.
Carlton goalsneak Matthew Wright said the team building exercises in Queensland is a welcome change from the cooler temperatures in Victoria.

‘We’re up here for a bit of a change and sessions like today (Sunday) are probably a little bit easier in Melbourne just because of the climate so…It’s good to sort of acclimatise yourself to those conditions,’ he told Sunshine Coast Daily.
‘It’s good to get away as a group; we’re living and breathing together and we’re eating every meal together so it has been good fun.’
