We caught up with Speed and Power Coach, Rubin Ruzicka, the man responsible for Manly’s explosive acceleration, electric footwork and blinding pace.

“Pre-season has been pretty good. The boys have been training well and most of them have got a fair few pre-seasons under their belts, so they know what’s expected,” Rubin said.

“There are a few young guys that we’ve got floating around that are experiences things for the first time, but on the whole, things are going pretty well.”
