Making their Mark
Eagle forward Mark LeCras’ family head to the grand final
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.”
