100 days on from starring in the Club’s maiden Premiership win, James Maloney says the Sharks are driven by the motivation to re-write the game’s history – again.
Speaking with Sky Sports Radio’s Big Sports Breakfast Extra, Maloney said though while it was special to feature in the Sharks Grand Final victory, that he and the side are gearing up and focussing now solely on that of the 2017 season.
“There’s only ever going to be one ‘first’ at the Club, and that’s going to go down in history,” Maloney said.
“We’ve focussed on how we need to be better than where we were last year, as a team and as individuals. Everyone’s been setting goals in certain areas on where they want to and need to improve.
“Last year has been and gone now … we’re going to have a harder run, it’s hard as a side to be up for 26 games. That’s the challenge.”
Maloney also touched on his teammates efforts in pre-season training, as well as upcoming fixtures at the Auckland Nines and World Club Challenge.
