West Brom's Hal Robson-Kanu Reaping the Rewards of Tony Pulis' Intense Training Regime

Luke Calver

West Brom forward Hal Robson-Kanu has said how training at West Brom is 'very intense', but it is worth it and is keeping him fit.

The Wales international joined the Midlands club on a free transfer after a superb Euros with Wales last summer, however he has not really been able to cement a first team spot. The striker did score though against Arsenal on Saturday, only 75 seconds after coming off the bench as a sub.​

The goalscorer has been speaking to ​Match of the Day Two Extra about the intensity of Tony Pulis' training sessions:  "I'm fully fit.

"Training's very intense at West Brom. I've featured in pretty much every game since I've been there. The intensity of training has been good so I'll be fine (for Friday).

"It's a work ethic which the manager instills in the group and it's obviously paying dividends.

"I want to play games, every professional players wants to. For me it's about working hard in training and showing the manager I'm ready and what I can bring to the team. I'm getting more and more game time and hopefully as things progress we'll see more of that soon."

The Wales International linked up with West Brom after the Euro's where he scored some crucial goals for his side, and one very special goal to remember against Belgium in the knockout stages. Robson-Kanu commented on why he chose the Midlands club over others:

"I wanted to join a stable club and a club that's progressing, and that's what I've found.

"We're a small group in terms of numbers, but everyone's together, working hard and fighting for the same cause. That's what the manager instills."
