Next up in our season previews is DB and new #23, Jonny Weekes. Having made the short move across the water to join the Nighthawks from Division 2 outfit, the Chester Romans, Jonny has quickly established himself in the team and is looking forward to a new challenge in 2018.
Why did you join the Nighthawks?
It’s a new challenge to where I was originally from and gives the opportunity to play with and against some of the best players in the country.
How have you found pre-season?
I’ve really enjoyed it, the coaching has developed my game to a new level. It’s got me itching to go now
What are you most looking forward to this season?
The challenge of facing some of the best players in the country, and of course winning the bowl.
Is there anyone on either side of the ball that we should keep our eyes on?
Murph (RB), having played against him previously, I know his north/south running ability and physicality can really test any interior defence in the league.
