Season Look Ahead, Card Sharks

The CAFL season opened with a tough and hard-fought CAFL Cup pre-season tournament.


Each team came away with a win on the day however the Tiger Sharks won the tournament based on percentage. All that remains now for each team is their first game of the home and away season. Each team has planned their way through the trade and draft period and with the CAFL Cup under their belts CAFL media will talk with the captains to gain their insight on how their teams pre-season went and how they are preparing for round one.

So CAFL Media spoke with card captian  Robert McKinlay


CAFL Media: Having seen your team play now in the CAFL cup do you feel you drafted well?

Robert: Having seen the team in action I am actually more confident that the Card Sharks have the tools to make it to the final this year.


CAFL Media: If you had to pick out 1 player who stood out for you in the cup who would it be and Why?

Robert: The player that stood out for me in the CAFL cup was Blair. He did an excellent job covering Tom who while new to the team and the set up had obviously played back in Australia which gives him an incredible advantage.


CAFL Media: Who do you feel could have a big season or improve most this year?

Robert: Players who will improve will be Blair, Leesa and Andy Dangermouse McAllister… Already their attitude at training has been exemplary and with hard work their games will come on lively.


CAFL Media: With each team vying for top spot what do you believe will help you team attain that this year?

Robert: The Card Sharks I believe have the most legs this year and that will tell when conditions start to favour our running game.


CAFL Media: How are you preparing for round 1?

Robert: After seeing a strong Makos performance against the Tiger Sharks I am currently coming up with a gameplan to rub salt in the wounds



CAFL Media: Lastly who would your early prediction be for MVP this year?

Robert: MVP wise I think we see the same contenders mixed in with a few new faces. The likes of Dubojski and Adam Jack will be put through their paces by young Alexander Clark who shone in the CAFL cup.
