“Round 1 is always exciting. Everyone’s raring to go and get the season underway," he said.
“With Manly there’s obviously a bit of history there, and at the SCG you never have to fabricate anything to get up to play there.
“It’s such an iconic ground, there’s been so many great players in so many different sports who have graced those stands and the field before us, and it’s always an honour to play there.

“It’s amazing playing there,” he said.
“Knowing Round 1 is going to be there, it will be massive for us as a team to put a stake in the ground and say ‘we aren’t going to lose here’, and we’ll be looking to do that.
“Get around us. Celebrate the start of the season with us. We’ll be going out with the intent of putting on a show for the Members and fans and do our best to win."

New signing Adam Keighran says he is looking forward to the opportunity of pulling on the famous Red, White and Blue at a ground that has seen the side win 14 of their last 18 matches.
“I remember coming to play here against the Roosters and it’s a daunting feeling against the Roosters in itself, but to play in the colours it’s going to be something special," Keighran said.
“Get excited. There’s big things ahead for us this year, everyone’s bought into the pre-season and everyone is getting their combinations as we saw in the trials. Be excited, get ready for it."
