Adaptable O'Brien Settling In At The Roosters

There are a number of new faces at the Sydney Roosters in 2019, but one you might now have seen yet is new Assistant Coach Adam O'Brien.

O'Brien was an Assistant Coach to Craig Bellamy at the Melbourne Storm for twelve seasons specialising in attack.

He brings his skills to the Sydney Roosters this upcoming season and beyond, and so far it's been a perfect fit.

"It's been great," O'Brien said with enthusiasm.

"I'd been at Melbourne for twelve years, so this is the first time I've been at another club and I'm full of praise.

"There's a really good feeling when you walk into the club.

"The players that are training at the moment are an extremely energetic bunch and hard-working, so I'm really pleased."

O'Brien specialises in attack, and it's safe to say after twelve years that he's got a certain style.

When asked whether or not he's brought his old trick bag with him to his new Club, he offered some wisdom about his attacking philosophy.

"I think certainly you'll have your philosophies on how the attack should look, but it's important that you look at the players you have at your disposal and come up with a plan that can bring out the best in the individuals you've got.

"You need to be strong in your philosophies, but you also need to be adaptable."

It feels like the NRL season is just around the corner, but O'Brien knows not to look too far ahead and that getting better each and every day is the most important part of the pre-season.

"It's important that we're not looking too far around that corner.

"We're certainly keeping tomorrow at the forefront of our minds.

"I think if we can get tomorrow and our building blocks right up to Christmas, we'll put our best foot forward when those games come around."
