There’s quite a few. Probably watching Kendrea get so excited in the coach’s box when Eltham won the A grade Grand finale. That was nice.

A simple ground ball drill with about 20 balls pick up cradle and put them back down. Great for fundamentals and can get a good sweat.

 Being able to come down on a Saturday or a tournament and see everyone in one place and have a good yarn.

Haudenosaunee is a pretty special team to watch and play against.

I usually need to go and run a lap by myself just to make sure my legs feel alright. Also need my strapping tape to feel just right.

Always two long blacks, usually gets me going.
