Thursday 21 Jan – Tour Diary

Filed under: zmydunqd — Tags: , , , , , , , — admin @ 5:07 am November 7, 2019

first_imgGive us a rundown of your day?The day started off as usual with a team meeting at 9am in one of te player rooms. We then made our way to the stadium (The Trusts Stadium) where we are playing, for the official jersey presentation & team photos. It is always a proud moment receiving your Australian Jersey!We were lucky to have most of the afternoon off so our fearless leader Drummy (who knows his way around Auckland) suggested we visit Wai Wera Hot Baths for some R & R. Whilst is was very relaxing in the hot pools it was more fun taking each other on down the waterslides that were also there.  It was very amusing to see and hear our assistant coaches Peter Forrester and Paul Sfeir take on the slides as I don’t think they were designed for people of their structure! The bus trip home from the hot baths was alot quieter as most of the boys fell asleep. That night we had the official welcoming and opening with all the teams, referees and officials. Steve Price, Australian Rep, Queensland Rep, former and mighty Bulldog and now Auckland Warrior, was there as a guest speaker. He spoke about three things that have got him where he is today.Support, Sacrifice & HonestyIn brief, they meant:Support – From family, friends and the people around you.    Sacrifice – You need to make sacrifices to get to the top. Need to prioritise and work towards your goal.  Honesty – you have to be honest with yourself. Not to make excuses or look for other people to blame when things aren’t going your way.To finish up, I am really looking forward to this series. I am looking forward to playing the Kiwi’s on their home turf and wearing the Australian Colours. Much love to everyone back home.How is the team shaping up for the 2010 Trans Tasman?The team is looking really good for the Trans Tasman. There is a really strong feeling within the team as everyone is very tight and looking forward to taking on the Kiwi’s together. What is the Atmosphere like in the team?As mentioned before the team is very close and there is a good vibe amongst the players. There has been plenty of laughs (where the boys are comfortable enough around each other to let go of bodily gases). But also we know when to knuckle down & focus when it is time.Did you bring anything with you to make it feel more like home?My mum and my sister!What do you do before a big match to prepare physically and mentally?Nothing special. I try to do things as normal and to relax as much as possible which usually involves kicking back and watching a movie. On the way to the game I normally listen to music and start think about my role in the team.Explain to the players back home, what are your feelings when you running onto the field for an international match?First and foremost I obviously feel proud and honoured to wear the Aussie colours and represent my country!!!  There are a few nerves but also plenty of excitement.last_img read more
