At the risk of sounding cheesy, it continues to teach me things all the time. Partly out of my own inferiority complex and partly out of determination, it’s something I want to get better at, something I want to work for. I’ve learnt to suck it up if I only play a quarter, and if that’s the case to play the best quarter possible. I finally understand what one of my favourite NRL players, Kalyn Ponga, means by ‘keep it cool’, and what a difference it can make when I go to take a shot under pressure. I’ve felt the excitement when there’s a minute left and you’re one goal ahead. I finally understand ‘working as a team’ in the most literal sense.
