For many of us, the break will be time spent recovering from the usual injury niggles.
But more importantly, it will be a chance to catch up on the time we’ve spent away from family and friends.
Few would’ve imagined us to be 12 wins and one loss at this point of the season.
And we truly believe we could’ve been 13-0 had it not been for some lacklustre play against the Adelaide 36ers.
Some have mentioned complacency among this group but I can assure the doubters there will be none of that.
This group is extremely passionate and like many Perth Wildcats teams, we want to forge our identity through our work ethic and through relentless intensity.
We believe we can be something special this year.
It’s been great that, not just the players, but each individual at the club has bought into the belief.
During this festive season, I’m extremely fortunate to be heading off to Bali with team mate and close friend Jesse Wagstaff, as well as his fiancee Stephanie.
Not often are you able to do that, but with ridiculously low airfares and the option of receiving $8 massages and nasi goreng for next to nothing, it was an offer that we simply could not refuse.
On coming back to Perth, I will continue my community work, helping to feed the homeless over the festive season.
I am working diligently to begin some pilot projects with my chosen charity Youth Focus.
Finally, I would really like to thank everyone for their continued support.
We’re looking forward to playing our next home game on January 10 when, hopefully, we’ll be sitting at 14-1.
Merry Christmas to all!
