"Time to put in the work"
It’s the attitude that has seen Jesse Bromwich become the world’s best front-row forward.
Just days into his return to pre-season training, Bromwich is already keen to put his best foot forward in front of Melbourne’s coaching staff.
“This is the time to put in work and the time to impress the coaches if you want to be there Round 1,” Bromwich said.
“I’m feeling pretty fresh – I’m really looking forward to a big pre-season and getting a bit of work in with the boys.
“I’ve jumped straight back into it…it’s a long pre-season but it’s good for you.”
Bromwich will be playing alongside a former rival in 2018 with former Bulldog prop Sam Kasiano already impressing his New Zealand compatriot.
“He’s training really well – I’m looking forward to partnering up with him,” Bromwich explained.
“I’m looking forward to putting in a big pre-season together.”
