White promises revenge
JAVARN White will have a point to prove when he runs out for Rockhampton Leagues Club Central Queensland Capras against his former club Ipswich tonight at Browne Park.
By his own admission, White left the Ipswich Jets to move closer to family, but had to work hard on his game to return to his Player of the Year-winning best.
Saddled with leading the team around the park, the Capras fullback had a valiant first showing in Round 1 of the Intrust Super Cup against the Burleigh Bears.
But after an ill-fated 48-12 loss to the Souths Logan Magpies at Gary Larson Oval, White was ready to secure another win for the Capras.
"Last week was pretty disappointing but we can't dwell on that," White said.
"Hopefully we can get the two-points this weekend."
But it's the former Jets fan favourite selfless pointers that could come back to haunt him when he runs out for the Capras tonight and tries to silence the same players he helped nurture.
"They are pretty unpredictable, the way they play is the way they train, so you don't know what's coming," White said.
"They know the way I play and I have no doubt I'll be a bit of a target."
White stressed the importance of consistency in tonight's clash and said it was not to be billed by their tough opponents.
"We need to focus on our defence. Ipswich are good at finding the try line, they have quick blokes all over the park," he said.
"This weekend will be a matter of the whole team playing well and heading in with the right attitude."
Capras coach Jason Hetherington said players preparation would come down to the individuals mental and physical capabilities.
