Little blurb about the great man in sport confidential in the telegraph today - has a session with the players each week to give them a little history lesson on the Sharks history & players.
I love this
I think as a club we always miss this part, be awesome to get some of those old boys back in and around the club

Good stuff. You want em to bleed for the jersey let em know why.

Seems like Fitz has a very considered and holistic approach.

He’s mentioned he’s a fan of having symbols of success at the club in Lewie and Gallen.

He’s definitely coming in to completely overhaul things. It’s great.

Fitzgibbon's blunt message to players

New coach Craig Fitzgibbon has wasted no time enforcing some strict discipline at the Sharks.

Players were handed their new training kit for 2022 recently - and informed that if they lost or damaged their gear, they would have to pay for the replacement items themselves.

The move hasn't gone down all that well with some of the Sharks' senior players - but is a great lesson in accountability and real world issues that so many modern day stars struggle to deal with.

Wonder what his orange peel policy is

on the actual policy, I hope they still replace any gear damaged accidentally in training. You don't want two players bickering over who is paying for a new training top because it got ripped in a drill

Interesting to see how this plays out, lots of players need a cuddle these days or they spit the dummy.

I'm sure it sounds better in their head but imagine thinking you are too important to be expected not to lose your possessions

Fug em, not sure how many would actually have their noses out from this and I could guess who it might be but also not entirely sure I believe the papers too. Likely over stated to create a story.
