Rabbitohs man of steel Dave Tyrrell has enjoyed preparations for the 2014 season, with all of the top grade playing squad now back on deck after the World Cup.
For Tyrrell, simply being around his teammates again – both old and new – has made for an enjoyable preseason, despite the hard work.
“Yeah the preseason’s been really tough,” admitted Tyrrell.
“But I’m enjoying getting to know all the new boys and getting on with all the old fellas – it’s good having everyone around again.”
With trial games just around the corner and with the Nines tournament looming, the Rabbitohs forward cited that he is looking to play as much football as possible. Tyrrell hopes to make an appearance in Auckland to display his ‘winger-like’ speed.
“I used to be a winger back in the day,” said Tyrrell, who last year controversially beat five-eighth Luke Keary in a very public sprint on Rabbitohs TV.
“I’d like to think I’ve got something there, but we’ll see what happens.”
Tyrrell, the Rabbitohs’ very own resident movie-buff also gave Rabbitohs TV an update on the much-anticipated Batman-Superman crossover film, with news out of Hollywood less than encouraging.
“The Batman and Superman movie has been delayed – nine months I think it is,” said a disappointed Tyrrell.
“It’s a little bit disappointing, but hopefully it gives them time to get it right.”
