I’m loving it: Witts

It’s only going to make us get the best out of each other so in that sense it’ll be really good and really healthy for the club I think.

Gold Coast SUNS recruit Jarrod Witts believes the increased competition for the number one ruck spot at the club will bring the best out of not only himself but his new teammates.

Incumbent Tom Nicholls and Dan Currie are battling with the former Magpie to start in the centre square in the SUNS’ round one clash against Brisbane at Metricon Stadium, competition that will heat up with every day that passes.

“It’s been really good and it’s going to be good competition going into the season,” Witts told goldcoastfc.com.au.

“It’s only going to make us get the best out of each other so in that sense it’ll be really good and really healthy for the club I think.”

The 208cm ruckman hasn’t missed a beat since relocating from Victoria to the Sunshine State and has been well supported by his new teammates.

Witts believes the SUNS can achieve success if the club can keep its players out of the physio rooms and on the field.

“It’s been a really smooth transition,” Witts said.

“I haven’t felt uncomfortable at all, the boys have been really good and I’ve managed to find a house right near the beach so I’m loving it. So far, so good.

“There’s some highly skilled players here that have got quite a bit of talent so if we can keep everyone on the park I think we’ll go alright and we’ll have some success,” Witts said.
