Melbourne will always be home and we can't wait to return to the best city in the world and play in front of our home crowd.
We will continue to represent Melbourne and Victoria with pride and passion, but for now we have the opportunity to strengthen our connection with the Sunshine Coast.
It's a connection that runs deep, given our ties with both the Sunshine Coast Falcons and the Sunshine Coast Lightning - two hugely successful clubs in their own right. Must be something in the water up here.
We are grateful to the Sunshine Coast Council for adopting us Victorians for the next little while and very lucky to share the first-class facilities at Sunshine Coast Stadium and USC Gym.
While we can't be together, it's nice to feel closer to our mates at the Falcs and the Lightning and experience the exceptional hospitality on the Sunny Coast.
