North Sydney General Manager Greg Florimo has stressed both commitment and discipline in his opening address to the troops at the Bears' first official function at the Norths Leagues Club on Friday night.
?While we were turned down for the opportunity to play in the NRL we have not given up hope. We will concentrate on winning in Jersey Flegg and Premier League, to put ourselves in the best possible position if a chance of an NRL franchise comes along. So we are here to win not lose. While we do not have an NRL team we do have a feeder arrangement with the Storm and a number of our players trained with them this year.?
Greg also talked about the commitment required. ?You?ll play 24 of the hardest games you?ve ever played ? don?t die wondering! Congratulations on getting to this stage and hopefully you?ve got the right stuff we are looking for.?
