I'VE found a great way of keeping out of trouble and making sure I'm never short of something to do.
It's called being the captain of Huddersfield Giants!
I've obviously got my on-field role to play, helping to lead the team during the Super League campaign.
But there's also my off-field commitments as club captain.
I always knew there would be a fair amount of work to do on this front.
Yet I have to admit I never envisaged it would be quite this busy.
Not that I'm complaining, of course.
In fact, I'm thoroughly enjoying the extra role of the captaincy, and my work with the media in particular.
I know how important this is to the club, because the more we can raise the profile of the Giants, the more chance we have of generating extra support.
This past week, in particular, has been non-stop on this front.
Last Friday and Saturday, I was doing interview pieces with local radio stations and, on Sunday, some of you may have seen me on the BBC's Super League Show.
And the following day I was a guest at Richard Blakey's Sportsman's Dinner in Leeds, taking part in a Question of Sport-style event.
I've also this week received a letter from Sky Sports inviting me to be a guest on their weekly Boots N All programme, so I'll be heading down there in the next few weeks.
These are obviously ideal ways in which I can tell a wider audience all about Huddersfield Giants and help spread the positive word about the club.
Robbie Paul, in particular, has given me a great deal of encouragement and advice on these matters, because he's the absolute master on the media front.
Like me, he appreciates how important it is to be seen and heard. We all want to do everything we can on any front for the benefit of the Giants.
Finally, on behalf of all the players, I would like to send our condolences to the family of club historian Mick Rhodes.
Mick was a very popular figure around the club and we were all saddened to hear of his death.
