Prop Cian Healy is expected to miss the start of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations after undergoing surgery on his injured ankle on Wednesday.
"While rugby was the main theme during the trip, on Wednesday the boys did things like a mini gun run and trailer pulling - exercises that greatly helped team building and togetherness.
"We chose Aldershot for a number of reasons. It was not far to travel and we knew we could call on their great facilities if the weather was bad. In the event we didn't need to go indoors at all.
"We have still got a bit to do but we have two friendly matches still to come and I am sure we will be right for our trip to Glasgow Rugby on Friday, 5th September."
