Bulldogs winger Curtis Rona spoke with the media today and discussed what he wants to achieve in 2016.
After finishing the 26 rounds from the 2015 season with 22 tries next to his name and one behind Eels flyer Semi Radradra, Bulldogs winger Curtis Rona is keen to go one better in 2016.
“I just want to go out there and play consistent football for the Bulldogs and then hopefully the tries come,” Rona said.
Rona made a habit of diving over in the corner to score some spectacular tries in 2015 with his trademark one hand put down and after setting the bar so high last season, the winger doesn’t feel any added pressure for the upcoming season.
“I just think about sticking to my routine and that’s what I think has been the best thing for myself.
“I just go out there to do my job."
Rona’s outstanding form in 2015 ultimately led to his selection in the New Zealand Kiwi’s tour of England and although he had to withdraw from the side due to the birth of his first child, wearing the colours of his native New Zealand is what he is eyeing off in season 2016.
“I’m dying to play in the black jersey.
“If I get the chance to play in the ANZAC test, I will be excited for that.
“The first few rounds I am just worrying about the Bulldogs and hopefully if all goes well, I get picked in the Kiwis side."
The Bulldogs season kicks off on Friday night against the Manly Sea-Eagles, but the first home game is against the Parramatta Eels in round 3.
