Robin van Persie and David De Gea took part in their first training session of Tour 2013 presented by Aon on Monday afternoon.

The pair flew into Sydney on Sunday to join up with their team-mates having been granted some extra time off following their international commitments over the summer.

The Reds trained at the Kogarah Oval, home of rugby league team St. George Illawarra Dragons, in pleasant conditions in Sydney.
