Joondalup Weekender - - News - Justin Bian­chini

THE fam­ily name syn­ony­mous with WA foot­ball and cray­fish­ing in Cer­vantes will be well rep­re­sented at this Satur­day’s AFL grand fi­nal.

Silky-skilled West Coast Ea­gles small for­ward Mark LeCras’ par­ents Peter and Leonie headed to Mel­bourne last night and older brother Brent will travel to­day.

Brent, drafted by North Mel­bourne and a premier­ship player with West Perth, is go­ing to the grand fi­nal with wife Lau­ren and their chil­dren Koby (10) and Max (5).

“It should be pretty good; hope­fully they can get up,” Brent said.

Brent said a few cousins, in­clud­ing for­mer Fal­con Tyson Lord, and peo­ple from Cer­vantes were also head­ing to Mel­bourne to watch Mark play.

“We’ve chat­ted like nor­mal,” Brent said of his brother. “Mum’s a bit ner­vous but Dad is cool and col­lected; they’re both ex­cited and hop­ing for a dif­fer­ent re­sult to 2015.”
