Thanks brothers! The
I've got a rugby league tournament this weekend. I got selected to play for the 'Australia' team for the All Stars comp this weekend for South Australia against the Indigenous/Pacific Island South Australia team.

We had training today.
Sprints-
30mx5
50mx5
The rest was drills and setting up plays. I don't use a GPS but no doubt I would've covered at least 3 kilometres in jogging and intermittent sprints since the drills and plays went for 2 hours. The comps on this Sunday.

I've got my Army fitness test in 6 days time so I've literally been doing hundrends of push ups and sit ups in preparation.

The rugby league tournament was disappointing.  We had 4 players that were no shows on the day. It turns out that 2 of them got arrested in the days prior while the other 2 were just uncontactable on the day. I scored a couple of tries but overall we came 3rd out of 4 teams on the day winning 1 game and losing the other 2. It was 37 degrees Celsius on the day so after the first 5 minutes of the 1st game I felt gassed but as the day went on I adapted to the weather and was able to run out the remainder of the games. The pitch was good but there were dry patches so I've got carpet burn scabs on both knees.

The season schedule hasn't been announced yet but the state tournament will be held in June up in Darwin. My ambition is to play state again this year so as soon as I pass the fitness test for the army I'll be requesting to get sent out to Kapooka asap to do my 5 weeks training so I don't miss much of the rugby league season and have a shot at playing state again.

League training got cancelled tonight as half a dozen players called the coach and said they couldn't make it. I miss playing at the Bulldogs where we used to have 30-50 players twice a week all competing for positions in the pre-season.

Did my own fitness.

150mx5 <20 seconds with 1:30 minute recovery between each 150.
Worked up a sweat but wasn't that strenuous, which was good.

I also received a call from the new league state coach today saying he was impressed by my performance over the weekend. He just said I needed to work on my fitness if I wanted to make the state team this year since wingers play for 80 minutes without a rest. Besides that he just said he wanted to have 'speed on the outside' and he knows I have speed I just need better conditioning. Good motivation.

Edit- It was 40 degrees and driving home from my training right next to the oval I was running at was a 2.5m brown snake lying in the middle of the road. I didn't see it until it was too late and ran over it. Snakes are fkn tough it slithered away as I drove about 200m up the road and did a U-turn to see if I'd killed it. The snake was lurking on the curb next to the foot path seemingly unharmed. Snakes scare the shit out of me!!!

I started a new job on Monday, which I've enjoyed so far but it's only been a week. I sent an email to the Army explaining the situation and they have allowed me to defer my fitness test until the 29th of April.

I've been slack with the gym but I've been going to rugby league training. The season starts in 4 weeks. The numbers have lifted, which is good. We're now up to 26 players so there will be competition for positions. We had 18 players at training tonight so we could actually practice plays and have a productive training session. Off field we've secured a couple of new sponsors this season and retained our existing ones. In 2 weeks we move to a new home ground at Hanson Reserve. Overall the club is heading in a positive direction.

Thanks adarqui the new job has been very mentally refreshing. I even went 6 days without drinking, which is probably the longest abstinence period I've had for 5 years.

League Training-
Numbers have increased again. We had 29 players at training and ran through some offensive structures and worked on defense. My body is feeling very fresh atm. No aches, no soreness, no injuries. A rugby league crossbar is 3m high and I can double hand grab it at will. 3 weeks left until our first game.

League Training-
31 players tonight. Awesome training session.

Yesterday I went for a 7km walk, which took 1 hour and 15 minutes.

League Training-
We're getting more and more players each week. We're only running 1 team this year so there are going to be lots of players that miss out. First game is next Sunday. Training was good tonight. I suffered a corky about 20 minutes into training but trained through it. Feels sore now but should be fine in a couple of days. The reason for the resurgence in numbers is that some of my team mates from the 2017 Bulldogs team have decided to play, which has encouraged other players to come out. We still haven't moved to our new home ground yet but being in a more central location also helps with recruitment. I want to play this wing this season but I have a feeling the coach wants to play me as a fullback or in the centers this season.

6 years ago on this day I was working in a meat factory for $20.50 an hour starting at 4am. Every day I would wake up early, get to work and watch the clock and calculate the money in my head. 90 minutes prior to close I'd hose down and clean all the machines, and come home soaking wet smelling like meat. At the time I felt very resentful because I had gone to uni for 4 years, which cost me 40k. Yet here I was underutilised, working in a low paying job, with most of my colleagues barely able to speak English. These days I have a much better job and earn double the amount, but I still feel miserable. 6 years ago if I was in my current position I would feel happy. However, now I still feel underutilised...

Sorry to hear that mate. Has the new role in the Army not been much fun so far?
