JOSH Corbett is appreciating life's simple pleasures as he navigates his second season as an AFL footballer.
While Gold Coast has only been subject to a quarantine hub once this season - a fortnight-long stay in Wollongong - Corbett is under "strict restrictions" as a contracted player.
The North Warrnambool Eagles export is living in the picturesque Palm Beach suburb with teammate Jesse Joyce and is keeping busy with a new pooch.
"We're under fairly strict restrictions. We're coming to training and there are specific days we can actually train as a whole group," Corbett told The Standard.
It's just a matter of playing my role for the side. My strengths are the work rate, the marking and that sort of stuff.Josh Corbett
"You're limited in the amount of contact you can do and it's even to the point where you have to make sure your drinkbottle is in a little group and all that sort of stuff.
"It is quite strict but I'm just so lucky because we're at home and we get to have our own beds. I saw the Geelong boys coming up the other day and their families needing to do two weeks quarantine before they could see them.
"We are very lucky in our position and I'm definitely not taking that for granted."
Corbett, who produced an eight-mark, four-tackle effort in the Suns' 63-point thumping of North Melbourne on Sunday, said consistency was his focus moving forward.
"It was personally my first win at the club," he said.
"It was awesome to be in the circle and sing the song. I think it was really a combination of a couple of months of consistent football.
"We'd been beaten in some close games prior to that but we put in a good, four-quarter effort. There's three rounds left for us to show what we can do in what has been a strong season for the club."
Personally, it's about clunking more marks and maintaining a strong work ethic.
"I'd obviously like a few more goals. I've been a bit inaccurate in front of goal (three behinds against North Melbourne)," he said.
"The more ball I get, the more that'll come with the more games I'm able to play.
"It's just a matter of playing my role for the side. My strengths are the work rate, the marking and that sort of stuff. If I'm running hard and getting on the end of the ball, and delivering to the likes of Sam Day and Ben King, who've had strong years, that's part of my role."
Corbett said Gold Coast's forward line - which also features livewires Ben Ainsworth and Izak Rankine - had a bright future.
He said the Suns' healthy list meant competition for places was strong.
The Suns play Hugh McCluggage's Brisbane Lions on Wednesday in the QClash.
