JAKE Granville is enjoying his off-season break in his hometown of Rockhampton.

The Cowboys player (pictured) said he would enjoy time with his family and a couple of games of golf, but couldn't wait to start training again.

"In a couple weeks we'll rip back into it, I think it's the 30th we start again and we can't wait to get back around each other and train up," Jake said.

Jake said the team's goal was back-to-back NRL Premierships, but competition was tough and they would have to wait to see how trials go.

"We've got a strong squad and we'll have a big pre-season, it's pretty short but we're going to have to train hard," he said.

Jake said he looked forward to the Premiership trophy making its way to the Beef Capital but was disappointed none of the players could make it.

"It's a tough call, the team did one trip and the players needed a break once the season ended," Jake said.

"It's good the trophy will get to Rocky but it's a bit of a shame no one could make the trip.

"We'd all love to be there but we've all got to have a break over the off season, all the boys have to get refreshed and half of them are away, so it'd be hard to get everyone together."

Jake said the team loved Rocky's support and wanted to thank them for it.
