Round 1 2016 is now less than 5 weeks away and the Unicorns have been slaving away on the track with record numbers in pre-season. Coach (Matt Nicholas) & Assistant Coach (Mark Bowen) featuring a cameo role from former coach (Mark Murray) have imposed themselves on the playing group setting a high standard for Tues/Thurs trainings. Multiple sets of 100m sprints, 300m sprints and exhausting full-ground drills have been on the menu weekly and the boys fitness is improving steadily.
New recruits from Mt Eliza, Bright, friends-of-unicorns and South Yarra locals have bolstered training numbers and standards, bringing in solid foot skills and a thirst for success.
