I'm mainly going as an excuse to spend the rest of my day on the beers and blowing a weeks wages on the ponies.

That Konnie photo is him sitting in the chair waiting to get his face painted :)
He's great with the fans Konnie.

I got in a little late. Walked in the gate with Shaun Johnson, Tuimoala Lolohea and Toafofoa Sipley. Got a quick chat in before Shaun Johnson was mobbed by the Red Bull car. Did a lap and talked to a few mates. An hour later I go past the Red Bull cars where Shaun Johnson hasnt moved and is still getting mobbed lol. Popular boy that Johnson...

Members Christmas party was fantastic. All the players and staff seemed quite happy to be there and mix and mingle with the club members. Been to a few of the after match functions and the players are usually quite buggered after the game and would usually rather be relaxing and getting on with recovery.
Players all looking fit and commented on how tough preseason has been and were all keen to get into 2016.
Had a chat with Jeff Robson and he is settling in well. He is all set up with an apartment over here and the club is being flexible with him so he can get back to see his family in Sydney. The guy comes across as a real pro and hopefully his attitude and that of some of the other newbies rubs off on the rest of the squad. Having said that the whole vibe within the squad seems to be very upbeat and there is a definite competition for positions. I think the hard line taken by Jim and Cappy at the tail end of 2015 is now paying off.
Had a chat to Jim and he hinted that there could be one more signing to come, however before I could push him for more info he was called away for an interview.
It's always great to catch up with other members that you have met over the years, everyone seems to have put the dramas of 2015 behind them and looking forward to 2016.
Bring it on can't wait.
