On the weekend our junior journalist Sebastian Bungate who played for the Mullum Junior Giants, headed up to Robina to interview some of the Titans players after their 19 point win over the Cowboys.
I interviewed Mark Loaned whom had just played his third NRL game. He is similar to me on games, he felt nervous but very excited to play. I play for Mullum Giants under 10s and I am fullback, unlike Mark who plays the position as prop. Before you play a game you need to ensure any injuries are taped up or strapped to make sure there is no further damage. You need to have all the proper equipment like mouth guards and head protection.
After the game the players shook hands. The Titans sang their club song. It was so cool to see this, they were loud and sang with enthusiasm. The coach John Cartwright was proud of his players winning.
Every game day all footy players need to make sure they have had plenty of rest the night before. All footy players must train throughout the week in preparation for their game with strength and endurance training. You also need to have a healthy diet.
It was so awesome watching the big game with all the mascots, cheerleaders and music, the atmosphere is so exciting. I hope one day I can play on the big football field just like Mark.
