    I love this.
    I know there are some that think the “old school” mentality should be left in the past, but Im not one of them.
    The game may have evolved but fundamentally, it’s the same. The team that wants it more, usually wins.

    There is no better profile pic on the kennel like yours, which best describes the user behind it!

    Yep, stripped back of all the hi tech theory and training equipment , special diets, sports science etc.. blah blah it’s still a pretty simple game of run faster, hit harder, commitment and team work. “The madness” for the want of a better phrase was there towards the end of the year. I love old dogs sharing their experience and enthusiasm for the jersey and club.
    Good stuff.

    About time the old school players came back and gave them some guidance. That comment about "blokes with 40-50 games", I reckon is squarely targeted at guys like Montoya / Crichton / Holland who should be performing better than what they have been.

    Just hope they don't put on too much muscle and slow up.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't/isn't O'Meley involved with NSWRL or junior State of Origin players for NSW??

    I saw both O'Meley and Mason doing at least one training session with the Junior NSW's side forwards (was on NRL.com video).

    This inspirational for the fans.
    Will be interesting to see how the players react.
    I don't want to sound negative but the times and the game have changed.
    Every time we needed to rebuild the team in the past we always had some special players to built the team around, players we do not have now !!!
    We need 2 or 3 marquee players for the 2021 season now, if we don't consider the 2021 season a right off as well !!!

    I always wait for the player terry lamb talks up. I know for a fact they will be a huge dud.

    it’s always that article that makes me laugh. Or the “you could feel the intensity in this preseason/we have never been this fit heading into a season”. Had the latter articles for about 7-8 years :p

    WIllie was also assistant coach for the forwards. Hopefully they got into a few of the boys ears

    Outside of the usual pre-season jibber jabber, good to know that Pay is seeking out some of these blokes and getting them involved. Big Willie is a straight shooter, the stuff he says about the teams perspective on last season can be taken on face value.

    Sherwin to help with halves skills. O'Meley to help with forwards skills. Mason to help with the tough winning mentality. Will be interesting to see the results.

    Best of all, no Sea Feebles ring ins, Bulldogs all the way.

    Hard work is important but you also need to have talent.

    There's no way I'd compare those players in Masons era to who we have today.
