WE’RE getting close to the final game of our Tour of Australia and we are really looking forward to it.
This trip has been a wonderful experience for the players and the staff and we have all grown together the more time we spend with each other.
Today, we trained twice to enable us to be a sharp as possible for our match with Penrith.
It was a great session and you can see the fruits of everything the staff are doing with the players.
Having quality time with the lads is paying dividends but we know we face a really tough game against Penrith.
Team spirit is great at the moment and the players are itching to get into their next match.
On tour we ask a lot of the players – this very young group are training in a professional environment, some for the first time. It is a lot to ask of them but they keep responding and today’s double session was one of the best we’ve had. They worked really hard.
We only have a few days to go now and the players are already excited by the prospect of climbing ‘The Bridge’. This is always a highlight of the trip and we’re all looking forward to it.
Hope you’re enjoying the pictures back home!
