"We've got a good group of players here who are working hard and we're really looking forward to the new season. We're looking forward to seeing some improvements from where we left off last season.

"We are still trying to build as a group. As much as we got the success at the end of last season, there's still a lot that we're trying to achieve here.

"Leeds and St helens have led the way for a long time in this competition so we're certainly trying to build on what we did last season."

On the three new arrivals of Jeff Lima, Ryan Hoffman and Brett Finch from Melbourne, Michael added,
