Some more points from the interview:
Goal = top 8
Great attitude from players, training hard, standards growing compared to past years, few injuries in his first year at the club, improving training standards, fittest team has been since he took over, working hard at this.
re. RF stuff - was a distraction, nice its not the case this off season. Don’t let distractions take team off focus.
Results in 2017 wont be a fluke, they’ll be based on hard work
Working hard to re-sign WoodsTeddyBroses, want to get this done ASAP, also focusing on getting the squad prepared properly for 2017. No priorities as to who to sign first as wants to re-sign all. Depends when they’re ready to sign. Confident to be able to re-sign all.
Very happy with Mitch, his game went to another level late last year & continued through pre-season. Led the way skills wise & physically. JLJ pushing him & the squad.
Defence - AW & PS have been added to the coaching squad to assist. Both working hard to improve defence. Very excited about how the team is being coached.
Jamal - lost his phone, but otherwise training well, as above, dropped 10 or so kgs, showing great signs at training. Def signed as a centre but may change if need-be.
