Only last season the 31-year-old Lake Macquarie product was part of a magical run with North Sydney, 13 straight wins in fact en route to claiming the club’s first Shute Shield since 1975.

The versatile back mainly played a “bit-part role off the bench” in the first XV and missed the grand final squadafter the return of a few Super Rugby representatives, but the28-15 victory over favourites Sydney University and that Saturday afternoon at North Sydney Ovalwon’t be forgotten any time soon.

“It was good to be around, that atmosphere at the end there was pretty crazy,” Holliday said.

“I don’t think too many peopleexpected them [North Sydney] to win it, orto go on that massive streak. It was a good environment to be involved with.”

Now, after thelatest two years plying his trade down in the state capital,Holliday has returned home to Walters Park and with premiership aspirations in mind.

“One of the bigreasons why I wanted to come back was tohopefully win a premiership at Lake Macquarie,” he said.

“It hasn’t been done before and it’s probably thething that drives me to go back there now.”

And he can already see the difference in the Roos squad compared to previous stints, including their last semi-final appearance in 2012 and back when he first started playing seniors at the club.

“It’s the best shape we’ve been in for a long time,” the Lake Macquarie fly-halfsaid.

“Just with the personnel and the work ethic at training, so I’m pretty confident it will be a good year.”

According to the one-time West Harbour playmaker those signs were evident in Saturday’s season opener, pulling away towards the end for a 39-15 triumph over visiting Singleton, but more inperformance than result.

“The thing that probably stood out to me washow we finished the game,” he said.

“In thepast Lake Macquarie would havefallen off towards the last 20 minutes, but the fact we finished on top was an indication of thepre-season work the guys have done.”

Out of the currentRoos group Holliday said he wasmost impressed with second-rower Junior Osasa, hooker Barcelona Lupematasila, outside centre Kitone Toaono Junior Ng Lam, fullback Calleb Gerrard and winger Jordan Leota.

“It’s probably the most evenly balanced team we’ve had in my time at the club,” the No.10said.

Holliday, a spray painterwho shifted from the Central Coast to Fletcher around Christmas time, will enjoyEaster off along with the rest of the competition before Lake Macquarie meetfellow first round winners University away on April 22.
