Still with an NRL debut fresh in his mind, the recently re-signed Tyrone Amey says he has a simple set of goals this pre-season.

Firstly, he wants to come back in 2018 a tougher player.

Secondly, he wants to add to his solitary NRL appearance.

“That’s the ultimate goal,” Amey told Knights TV.

“After getting that game in Round 26, it’s now a big motivation for me this pre-season to make the side again.

“I definitely want to get a few more NRL games in next year and get the experience.”

It was on Old Boys Day that Amey made his first grade debut from the bench, setting Lachlan Fitzgibbon up for a try within minutes of coming onto the field.

The local junior also made 23 appearances for the Club in Reserve Grade, in what was his first year out of the Under 20s system.

“I’ve tested myself for the last couple of years, but this is going to be the toughest test yet I think,” Amey said of this pre-season.

“I want to make myself tougher for next year, and touch wood I don’t get any injuries during the pre-season.”

With a number of more experience forwards coming to the Club ahead of 2018 as well, Amey says he’s hungry for knowledge.

“I want to learn off everyone, and there’s a lot of senior players coming in,” he said.

“I’m willing to learn, and let them show me the rights and wrongs of footy.”
