Bulldogs.com.au catches up with Lindon McGrady as he prepares for the upcoming pre-season.

The talented half spent the 2015 season in the New South Wales cup side and made a return to the training paddock last week with many of the new faces to the squad for 2016.

“Last week was an induction week and to have us ready for what is ahead,” McGrady said.

“The first few days have been tough. The body was a bit sore, but it’s what’s expected at this time of the year.”

The pre-season is about getting your-self physically and mentally right for the upcoming season and for McGrady, it’s about getting stronger and putting on some size.

“I’m looking to put on some size and getting a full pre-season under my belt.”

The crafty number seven will provide plenty of depth to the squad that features the likes of Moses Mbye, Josh Reynolds and Matt Frawley and learning off these guys will be, key for McGrady.

“It will be great working alongside these players and hopefully the benefits will see better results for myself throughout the season.”

Lindon is the nephew of former Bulldog Ewan McGrady and although it’s been 22 years since the 1991 Rothmans medal winner was last at the Bulldogs, the next generation feels very honoured to continue to grow the name with the proud club.

“It’s great to continue to carry the name and hopefully there are many more years for me at this great club.”
