Players Diary Day 12 – August 9th

By |2019-08-10T19:53:32+09:30August 10th, 2019|

Today started off a bit later for me than the previous two mornings, when I'd gone along to the IKF Congress. While it was fantastic to see behind the curtain so to speak, it was nice to be able to spend today with the team. It also means I missed all the excitement of the [...]

Players Diary Day 11 – August 8th

Hi all, After a very exiciting day where a lot happened, it is my honour to write about today. After our win last night we had a day of rest and everyone went down for breakfast when they were ready. As you may have read before I like to sleep so I was one of [...]

Players Diary Day 10 – August 7th

By |2019-08-08T07:59:17+09:30August 8th, 2019|

Hi everyone! Today was a very eventful day for the team! Unfortunately you've got me writing about what happened, but I'll try to do my best! 😅 Today started very relaxed as we didn't have training. This meant everyone could wake up and head down for breakfast when they felt like it. 😴 While Tim [...]

Players Diary Day 9 – August 6th

Hi All Today was similar to yesterday with an early breakfast and then training at the "globe". Coach Tim Miller pulled on the court shoes to fill the empty spot in a our practice game. He sweated it out with some great run-ins (see picture above). Jazz has been doing his best to be super [...]

Players Diary Day 8 – August 5th

Howdy howdy hope all is well back home where we know how to accommodate for vegos, vegans and various other diets. No hate on the locals though they do some mad tings with baked beans and hair do's. As per usual most of us woke up earlyish and headed down for breaky. At this point [...]

Players Diary Day 7- August 4th

By |2019-08-05T07:24:46+09:30August 5th, 2019|

It was our day off! The morning started as it always does, with my favourite meal of the day, breakfast. Let me tell you, the scones here are bloody amazing 🤤 We decided that for our day off we would spend the morning at a game reserve park, so we didn't get as much of [...]

Players Diary Day 6 – August 3rd

By |2019-08-04T05:00:12+09:30August 4th, 2019|

Today started a bit differently as we trained before our big match against Taipei. This meant that we had to have an early breakfast. This did not go down well between our two slow risers (Nik & Jeff) with Tim making no negotiations for the two boys . Training session went well for most, allowing [...]

Players Diary Day 5 – August 2nd

By |2019-08-03T11:36:47+09:30August 3rd, 2019|

What a day what a day. The day started for me at about 8:06 when I headed down to breakfast with Jeffrey. Jeffrey and I managed to work out a special deal with Tim to extend our breakfast deadline by 15 minutes, as long as we make it down by 8:15 we don’t get in [...]

Players Diary Day 4 – August 1st

By |2019-08-02T06:03:11+09:30August 2nd, 2019|

Hey everyone, I've been handed the reins for our Day 4 blog, and what a day it was! We rolled out of bed for a big pre-game breakfast at 8am. Then we spent the necessary time packing and repacking our sports bags, braiding each others hair (well Emily braiding everyone's hair - thanks Em!), pacing, [...]

Players Diary Day 3 – July 31st

By |2019-08-01T06:01:39+09:30August 1st, 2019|

Day three here in Durban, and we woke up from a much needed 10 hour sleep for most of us. Feeling fresh we got dressed and headed down for some breakfast. I had cereal and toast, nothing too exciting. After breakfast we got ourselves organised and ready to head off to our first training. The [...]

Day 1 What's up everybody, Jazz reporting from room 632 of the Royal Hotel here in Durban, South Africa and I'll be giving you a quick run down of our trip so far! After we met at Adelaide airport at 5am it all went down hill from there. Our first stop was Sydney. Our following [...]

Day 8 Josh and myself finally had a sleep in arising to the lovely sound of my alarm at 9 instead of fire trucks at 6. It was going to be a good day, the team had breakfast in their buffet while Josh and I got our favourite breakfast food in Japan, yoghurt. It was [...]
