Dom Tyson is confident he's free of the calf issues that have hindered his progress in the past two seasons.
The skilful midfielder has played just three games during his time at North, but back to full fitness, will be pushing for more senior games in 2021.
“In a good spot at the moment. I’ve finally had a consistent run at training,” Tyson told The Age.
“I’ve got a pretty strict program in place. It’s been working well, so it’s given me an opportunity to at least get to the start line this year.”
The 110-gamer is training with the Roos' main group on Mondays and Fridays, as well combining pilates, time in the ocean and additional treatment in a bid to stay injury free.
He's been a strong performer during the club's intra-club and match-simulation over the past month.
“I’m still super motivated to play some good footy for the North Melbourne Football Club,” Tyson said.
“It hasn’t sat well with me that I haven’t really exposed myself to other players and fans and the coaches. I’ve got that inner drive, I want to get back to my best footy.”
Tyson has also reunited with former Melbourne coach Paul Roos, who has joined North as a consultant to its football department, Board and administration.
“Been good to have a familiar face back in at the club for me. He’s calm and measured as well. I think he’ll be a great link,” he added.
