From Tassie to the warmth for new Mudcrab
GLADSTONE Mudcrabs' latest recruit Mark Jensen's career is a marine scientist has taken him to many places.
And after the Tasmanian played in his first full-scale hit-out in Friday night - Jensen has no regrets in moving to the warm environs of Queensland.
"I lived in Hobart for the last 10 years and I was to coach a side this year, but obviously had to move up here," Jensen said.
The experienced halfback flanker was also clearly impressed how the Muddies have approached this preseason and also the trial match.
"The ball moved around the ground quickly and the guys have been working hard on the structures," Jensen said.
"The trial was a really good hitout and the fitness is something that stood out for me and will be the key this year."
Jensen aims to provide guidance and leadership.
"Obviously when I went to the club I am keen to provide onfield experience and to help out," Jensen said.
Jensen and his new side take on arch-rivals BITS Saints on Saturday, April 16 from 2.15pm at BITS Oval in round one of the AFL Capricornia season.
