Titans utility Tyrone Peachey has declared he is happy to play any position asked of him in 2020, and has welcomed Head Coach Justin Holbrook’s “clean slate” approach since taking over at the Gold Coast.
The 28-year-old admits his 2019 was not up to scratch for one of the Club’s State of Origin representatives, and an open and honest chat with Holbrook has given him the motivation to perform well and return to representative football next season.
“I just liked that when he first got here that he said it was a clean slate and no positions were locked in,” Peachey said.
“All positions are up for grabs.”
Holbrook’s approach has helped raise the stakes around Parkwood, with the competitiveness among all players in the training group clear to see.
“It’s good to see everyone competing for spots,” Peachey said.
“Everyone has been training hard, and then after the trials the best team can be picked for Round 1.”
Holbrook met with each member of the playing group individually at the start of pre-season and the Wellington-born product was happy with how the chat went.
“The coach said to me at the first meeting: ‘Where do you want to play?’, and I just said I wanted to get through pre-season and go from there,” he said.
“He (Holbrook) said that he still isn’t sure where I’m going to play, and I was ok with that.
“I honestly haven’t thought about it too much.
“We haven’t been running any plays or anything, so I just want to get through pre-season and the trials all fit and healthy.”
