Tom Freebairn Re-signs for 2021

What are you looking forward to about the new season?

I’m looking forward to getting back into our normal routine and playing with and against the higher level of players and of course, getting back home to North Sydney Oval.

What did you learn or take away from the unusual year that was 2020 and will carry forward with you into the future? 

I took away that you can’t control anything in this world and it allowed me to plan a few things in my life outside of rugby league.

It also was a challenge to only have a 3 week preseason with a bunch of players never met before and to come together as one and buy into the Bear’s culture which I felt we did so well which says a lot about the strength of our club.

What are you looking forward to outside of rugby league in 2021?

I’m looking forward to spending some time and planning a wedding with my fiancé Kirsty.

Also hopefully a COVID free world which allows travel very soon.

And I’ve started up a new venture of uni so hopefully, I can smash it out!!
