Your road to success wasn’t always the easiest but no matter what obstacle was placed in front of you, you always found a way through it.”

“You’re a fighter and a bloody tough bugger. When your back was against the wall you never once hid, never once made an excuse, or ran away, you just cracked on, worked hard, backed yourself and got the job done. RESPECT!!”

When I first met you, you were a cricket player but by the end of your career you were an elite athlete and still are. I was your training partner so often which meant I got a front row seat into David Warner the athlete and just how you were wired differently to others. Your work ethic was and still is second to none.”

Discussing his disciplined fitness regimen, she added:

“What people didn’t get to see was just how hard you worked. From the 20km runs in the pouring rain, the 1km efforts where you would vomit from pushing your body to its absolute limit. The hill sprints, the soft sand runs, the gym sessions, the boxing, the laps in the pool. You inspired me to want to be better just as you have inspired a generation of young boys and girls to play cricket including our beautiful girls.”
