SATURDAY MAY 5 2018 NEWS 05 V2 - NTNE01Z01MA The support has been fantastic. It is humbling and overwhelming. Sometimes you sit back and reflect and wonder do people care about you as a person. Sometimes with our society something has to happen for the worst for people to come out and show a lot of support and I think Ive learned a valuable lesson in this myself for the support I have been given to be on the front foot to help others. The 31-year-old has deliberately kept out of the spotlight since Cricket Australia suspended him, former captain Steve Smith and bowler Cameron Bancroft over a balltampering incident caught on camera during the Second Test in South Africa earlier this year. To maintain his fitness, Warner has been training with wife Candice who is a former Ironwoman. She is the motivator behind my gym regimen, thats for sure, he said. She loves to keep busy and be active and we do a lot of training together. I take it to places where I am a chance of winning. But if we are in the water or on top of the water then she dominates. She has got me training a couple days of the week doing some different stuff so that is THE road to redemption for suspended Australian cricketer David Warner will start with an Arnhem Land trek. Warner arrived in Darwin yesterday and spoke exclusively to the NT News about his priorities for the next 12 months. Ahead of a Milo cricket clinic with more than 30 youngsters at the Darwin Cricket Club, Warner said he had been humbled at the public support and was enjoying becoming the full-time father he could never be while travelling 300 days a year. I think the biggest thing for us has been when you are in a routine you can get caught in a bubble cricket, hotels, packing your bags, coming home, he said. You are not home for long. With an extended period of time you are in a good routine but then it is selfless kids are a priority so its day care, swimming lessons, gymnastic lessons and then you get your quality time together as parents. Candice and I do all those things together. We take them to these things together pick them up together. I always make sure I am able to do it all the time. I am making time now and it is worthwhile. Ive missed that part where the kids run up to the gate saying Mummy and Daddy are here and I am really enjoying and embracing that. WORLD EXCLUSIVE fresh start in the territory fresh start in the territory Warners NT redemption great. Arnhem Land is a long way from the Second Test but it is a sabbatical Warner has been keen to undertake. He will travel to remote Northern Territory with Australias largest indigenous corporation, the Arnhem Land Progress Association, to promote a Territory developed driving app, DriveAbout, designed to deliver driver education. He has been an ambassador for the app since its earliest inception through his long-time friendship with developer Clinton Hoffman. I have been a big believer in DriveAbout from the moment Clint told me about it and am taking it to India where the road death statistics are horrific, he said. I feel privileged that in exchange for me teaching cricket I will begin to learn and witness traditional Aboriginal culture and at the same time we will have some fun and make great friends. I am looking forward to reinforcing the importance of road rule education in the communities where DriveAbout will help reduce incarceration and increase employability. ALPA chief executive Alastair King said securing a highprofile sportsman such as Warner was a huge boost to the programs they run in the region. At ALPA, we have a huge focus on developing youth programs and we support sports development across a range of sports in our communities, he said. But to have someone of Davids stature who has played for Australia coming out to spend time in our remote communities is just fantastic. ... you get your quality time together as parents D A V I D W A R N E R Video online CASUAL SCHOOL BUS DRIVERS BERRIMAH & HUMPTY DOO DEPOTS Career pathway opportunities available Paid training for successful applicants.
