NEW South Wales State of Origin star Josh "the fox" Addo-Carr has set up camp at Lennox Head where he is currently doing NRL preseason training.
The Melbourne Storm winger has been joined by new teammate George Jennings.
Storm officials had the pair move out of Sydney due to COVID-19 concerns while they have kept training on the Far North Coast over the last week.
They have been put through their paces by Wallabies assistant coach Scott Wisemantel who lives at Lennox Head.
Some of the best players from the local rugby league and rugby union competitions including former Wallaby Berrick Barnes, have been part of the sessions at Williams Reserve.
"We can't get into Victoria at the moment so Craig (Bellamy) decided to send us here for a bit of preseason training," Addo-Carr said.
"I don't know too much about the Wallabies but to come and learn from one of the best is pretty special.
"Everything happens for a reason, you just have to be willing to adapt and it's pretty impressive to see the way Scotty runs things."
"It's great to have so many young guys come down and do a bit of training with us.
"Some of them are a bit shy at the start but as we get going they get a bit more competitive.
"It would probably be a bit hard if there was only two of us here alone."
Addo-Carr, 25, has achieved plenty having won two premierships and been part of two State of Origin Series wins with NSW in 2018 and 2019.
He has also played for Australia having earned himself the nickname "the fox" for being one of the fastest players in the NRL.
2020 was a big year for Addo-Carr with another premiership win at the Storm while recently signing with the Canterbury Bulldogs on a four-year deal from 2022.
"I've spent the whole break with my family," Addo-Carr said.
"It's good to be able to kick back in Sydney and celebrate the premiership win.
"I've tried to stay off my feet and it's probably the most relaxed I've been for a few years now."
Jennings, 27, is heading to the Storm to get his NRL career back on track.
He was one of the Parramatta Eels' best players in 2018 but has struggled to break back into the side since.
He will join a Storm system which is known for getting the best out of its players.
"I think he'll go really well," Addo-Carr said.
"I'd love for him to be down there at the moment learning about what it's all about.
"If he rips into the preseason now he'll be in a good place when he gets his chance.
"You really have to earn your sport at the Storm and that benefits the whole team."
The NRL seasons starts on March 11.
