Yorkshire Carnegie forward Richard Beck says he is looking forward to happier times as he heads towards full fitness for the new season.

Beck joined his team mates at Headingley Carnegie for the arrival of the Rugby World Cup and he said he enjoyed the experience. He commented, "I am a couple of weeks off from being back in training and have targeted the Huddersfield game to come back in. The guys have gone really well in pre-season and I have been working hard to get myself fit. It has been a frustrating couple of years for me but hopefully that is behind me now."
