Not long mate. Once we get into February and the trials I reckon.

Not a whole lot to talk about yet besides speculating how we might go or who might plat.

Thanks anyway.

Good thing for season goes for 25 rounds.
You can bet your bottom dollar if he doesn’t have the fullback match fitness by round one he sure as hell will have it at the business end.
Personally I think being Tongan he naturally has a larger frame. He does have massive legs but they don’t look oversized, just powerful.
Could be his upper body is trimming down getting more defined which probably explains the weight increase.
Photos can be deceiving.
But if his first choice, he’ll be fit.
But, the season goes for 26 rounds?????????

And hopefully ours goes for 30........
It's been reduced to 25 rounds in 2017 (still 24 games each) as a result of the stand alone origin weekend
Wow I'm so out of the loop......

I also went to see the boys at this training session.

The gates were opened a lot earlier than advertised, so I was lucky enough to see them run some drills before they went into the opposed session.

Liddle was wearing red bib, so assuming that means no contact, but still participated as much as possible.

There seemed to be a lot more communication than I remember from some games that I have been too. This is a big change that I hope will continue.

There were 3 kickers practicing after the session, but I was sitting too far away and couldn't see who the other 2 with Tui were. Tui's lead up to the kick has changed slightly too.

Then the boys were good enough to go along the fences and thank fans, take photos and sign autographs. A great afternoon.

Can't wait to see the trial at Campbelltown - 4 weeks to go!

Corey Thompson maybe? He is a very good goal kicker.

Benji didn't participate in the training session, unless he was involved before I arrived. I asked a couple of the players where he was and they did say he was around somewhere.

The goal kickers were Lolohea, Milne and Marsters. Reynolds joined them after a while but that seemed more out of fun then anything. Lolo looked the best out of them all.

Benji twinged his calf in a session before the gates opened but apparently it’s nothing to worry about
