Sea Eagles skipper Jamie Lyon is more accustomed to presesesons than most. After an enjoyable off-season, the the 260 game NRL veteran is loving being back amongst the boys for another tough preseason.
The skipper enjoyed his time off playing a little bit of golf, taking the family away and simply relaxing ahead of what will be his 14th season of NRL.
"It's been good. It's been tough and we've had a couple of good session on the field already. It's tough to get back in to but it's been really enjoyable as well."
"Every year is tough, but it's good to get the body in good shape for the next year and i'm really looking forward to it. I can't wait to play some games after Chrissy."
He's also getting straight back in to the community work too, starting this Saturday at the Pittwater Golf Centre in Warriewood.
Jamie and some fellow Sea Eagles will be joining many others to help raise funds for the Starlight Children's Foundation to grant more than 200 life-changing Starlight Wishes for seriously ill kids and teens across Australia.
"It's going to be a good one. Hopefully we can get heaps of kids down there and mums and dads, and really raise some money."
There will be face painting, sausage sizzle, cake stall, hole in one competition as well as some amazing prizes to be won. All donations will be going directly to the Starlight Children's Foundation, so come down between 1-4pm and help the kids who need it the most.
