“As the leader of the Club, when the team isn’t flowing you have sleepless nights.”

He stated that his aim is to; “compete, stay in the moment and work hard for my teammates and set the example at both training and on-field.
“Going into the Parramatta game, I went in thinking ‘I’m going win no matter what, I’m going to compete on everything’.”
