Dan Hannebery is focusing on consistency throughout the pre-season as he looks to continue to takes his game to a new level.

The 25-year-old took out the 3km time trial on Monday morning as the senior players returned to the training track in preparation for the 2017 season.

Hannebery looked in prime condition as he showed no signs of a knee injury he sustained in the final quarter of the Grand Final.

The star on-baller said he had sat down with the coaching staff to set himself a number of goals for the months ahead.

“You want to try and be consistent with the amount of sessions that you do,” he said.

“I will be working on little areas of my game that I want to keep improving and working with the coaches to look at different things I can get better at.

“There is always something whether it be stoppage work, kicking or speed stuff.

“Each individual player will always look to improve and this pre-season will be no different.”

Hannebery was pleased with his performance in the time trial but even more excited by the condition of the young players.

“The last four or five weeks I have put in a bit of hard work with all the young guys,” he said.

“With the way the game goes these days it just gets harder and harder every year with the running and the demands that you come back in decent nick.

“I reckon I couldn’t tell you one bloke that didn’t run well today.

“Everyone looks fit from the big guys to the new fellas so that is a really good sign.”

The senior players will now have a solid three week block of training ahead of a two week break over the Christmas period.
