Senior Update - from A Grade coach Stan Carnes - 19 March 2015
Welcome back to the players who are now returning for Season 2015 and in particular the U17 squad and their 2015 coaches Wayne Smith and Dale Reid who are now also doing fitness training with the Senior Squad. Its good to now have everyone back after their various other sporting commitments ready and primed to do battle for the Crocs in 2015.

The trials kicked off against Darwin Dragons on 14 March for the Senior Squad after some good numbers at training.   The boys won 50-7 in difficult conditions over 4 x 20 min quarters. Good performances were put in by Pebbles, Toby,Greg and Rhys Junior.   The trial also saw the debut of our new off field team with Cecily and Manager Riva Zio, and on behalf of all the players I'd like to acknowledge the work they put in.  Cecily has had a massive few weeks and has also worked behind the bar this week in addition to strapping the boys before the game.  Volunteers like this are what make the Crocs special. Our next game is against last years premiers University at their home ground.  This will be a good measure of where we are at before the season proper begins.

Many of you would be aware of the players Facebook page and the Croc App are tools to keep across key dates and events. The Senior Squad group now has 58 members, however there are too few requests around the Croc App.  The App is a great tool to help show long term events such as games, social events and so on, so get onboard! If you don't know what to do, ask someone. Alternatively, speak to me and get my mobile number.

Finally, a big shout out to Sarah Moran who was the Mozzies Manager at the recent 7s Nationals. Sarah is an experienced Manager and strapper who has a good reputation with many Clubs in the Territory and she will also be joining the Senior Squad to help out Riva in the next few weeks.  I'd also like to acknowledge both Jacob Collins and Jai Wyles-Kelly who have both returned to full strength after injuries and have been training the house down. 

If no-one changes; nothing changes. You only play once so make the most of it.
