The Foxx fit and ready to go
Ten days out from the start of the season and Josh Addo-Carr has a message – he is ready.
With another tough, gruelling Storm pre-season under his belt, the electrifying winger is now chomping at the bit for the real action to start.
Addo-Carr set the NRL alight during his first season in Melbourne as he scored 23 tries and combined for a total of 46 alongside wing partner Suliasi Vunivalu.
Now as March approaches it is all system go for Round 1.
“I’m feeling really good,” Addo-Carr said.
“The last two trials have been good for me and the team. We trained really hard in the pre-season so we are looking forward to a good 2018.
“I strive to be the best I can be and just do the best I can for the team. I’ve been training hard this pre-season so hopefully the results will come.”
That hard work shone through in the World Club Challenge as Addo-Carr and his teammates sizzled on AAMI Park to record a commanding win over the Rhinos.
Torrential rain during last week’s Testimonial match made it difficult to shine through however it is all part of the preparations leading into the season opener.
“That is what trials are for, getting cobwebs out,” Addo-Carr said.
“I am looking forward to coming up against the Bulldogs and playing over in Perth.
“We don’t really get to play over there so just looking forward to getting over there.”
