So Thursday I had a day off from training with the sea eagles. The morning consisted of retail therapy buying various nrl shirts for my son Reece. The next bit of the day can only be described as mental.
I had the privilege to be guest of Joey johns as he did his bit for channel 9 sports. This was covering the souths roosters game at the Olympic stadium sydney. I was given access all areas. I was with them while they filmed live before the game meeting the likes of brad fittler , peter sterling. I think it's awesome the way they look after their ex players here. I watched the game from the actual sideline. Everyone made me feel so welcome! And what a game it was the 3 burgess boys were awesome in a good win for the rabbitohs.
The next day I was back at manly for the captains run and u can tell they are itching to get the season started it should be an awesome game against the storm. Also I met the one and only Chris hicks who was in great spirits as always. And guess what I'm back at the Olympic stadium for the bulldogs against the broncos. I think the security think I work for channel 9 I'm here that often. Ha.
Tonight I had the pleasure of meeting Darren Lockyer Gordon Tallis. And caught up with a good friend of mine Brett finch legend of a bloke. Let's hope it's a win for another English man tonight in James graham!!
