Prep For Central Coast

DAY 8 – The lads were out at 8.15am for a session working on some individual specific drills.

Tommy Martyn worked with the kickers, Derek Traynor the forwards, Ian Talbot the dummy halves and Neil Kilshaw the outside backs.

Once the session finished it was a quick shower and change before jumping onto the bus and heading into the city for an afternoon of free time.

It was a first opportunity to spend some of the money that has been burning a hole in their pockets since we arrived.

Pandora charms, t-shirts, trainers, NRL training gear and boots all contributed to making lighter wallets.

The lad who was most happy with his purchase was Brad Pinder. He had saved up and bought the same bright green Asics boots as his idol, Tommy Martyn, and didn’t worry about paying twice the price that Tommy had.

It was good to see that the lads clubbed together to help injured Josh Eaves celebrate his 18th birthday in style – he looked good wandering around Sydney in his ladies shorts, tourist T-shirt and hat complete with corks.

The second training session of the day was the final ‘captains run’.

Derek Traynor named the team and welcomed Mike Weldon back into the match day squad after his illness.

The session was held in Parramatta just as heavy thunderstorms were coming to an end.

Preparations for tomorrow’s game in Wyong against the Central Coast have gone well. The lads, still buzzing after Saturday’s win cannot wait to get back out onto the field once again.
