Ex-Wakefield Trinity man very confident ahead of NRL season as Sam Burgess says “I’m back on my feet”

Former Wakefield Trinity man Jason Demetriou is having a huge impact at South Sydney Rabbitohs as Head Coach.

He did a terrific job replacing Wayne Bennett and also finding a way forward for the club without star Adam Reynolds who left for Brisbane Broncos.

He is now very confident for the 2023 NRL season believing his squad are in a better place than last year:

“We’ve got a really settled squad. We’re in a much better position than we were this time last year, no major surgeries,” Demetriou told foxsports.com.au.

“You park last season but you still review it and make sure that when we come back in January (with the full squad) that we know the little margins that we need to improve and are clear on the direction we’re going.

“The players took a lot of confidence out of the back end of the year last year. I think we won 10 of our last 13 against top-six sides so that puts us in a good place.

“But it’s a different year, we need to get the pre-season right and worry about the start of the season.”

Meanwhile, Demetriou has got NRL legend and former Bradford Bulls man Sam Burgess as his assistant who recently said “I’m back on my feet, it’s good” after returning to the club.

This will add a lot to Demetriou’s coaching staff and have the Bunnies firing for next season.

He did however have to lure Burgess from The Dolphins who were also trying to bring him onto their coaching staff.
