Well it's good to be home.

It feels like an eternity since we've played at home but tonight finally marks our return to the friendly confines of the North Shore in front of our own screaming fans.

The holiday season has been busy, travelling to and from Australia four times since Christmas we have chalked up a lot of air miles but also a lot of wins, going four from four over this period.

As a team we love challenges and there is no better challenge than going away and beating another team on their home court.

We had talked about this period being a real turning point in our season and a series of games we wanted to win.

People said before we left that winning three out of four would be a pretty good achievement but as a team we have higher goals, which is to win every game.

We won our first ever game on New Year's Eve, hard to believe since the SkyCity Breakers have been around for 10 years and played on New Year's nearly every year since our inception.

That was certainly a highlight of the holiday period and while it would have been nice to be home with family and friends to bring in the New Year, I think being a part of something special like that helped bring us closer as a team.

The challenge now is to maintain our momentum and not let our hard work go to waste.

It is up to us to consolidate our position and keep this thing rolling.

Tonight will be a great challenge for us against a tricky Wollongong team and also marks the heritage round.

Make sure you check out our heritage throwback uniforms during the game and even bid for one online if you want to keep one for yourself.

The game is sold out so if you didn't get tickets get in quick for next week as it is also selling very quickly.

See you at the game.
