2018 Player Review – Kurt Capewell

Whether he was playing in the back line, the pack or coming off the pine, Kurt Capewell certainly proved his worth as one of the most versatile players in the black, white and blue in 2018.

An injury to Luke Lewis in Townsville, at the Sharks first Captain's Run of the season, meant Capewell was thrust into an 80-minute role for the opening match.

Although his minutes somewhat dropped over the proceeding rounds, Capes always did his job consistently, with his hard line running and solid defence a real asset to the team.

It doesn't matter where Kurt is thrown into the mix, he's got the skills and experience to get the job done every time.

Still only young, with plenty of football ahead of him, 2019 looks set to be the one where Capes could lock down a starting spot in the Sharks line up.

Having put in the work behind some of the most experienced backrowers in the game over a couple of years, Kurt's certainly in the mix to lock down the number 11 jersey in 2019.

Photo of the Year

This photo is typical 'Capes', a real people person. He's always got time for the Sharks faithful, staying out on the field for longer than most to head around the field and take photos and sign autographs after the Sharks Round 19 win in Canberra.

 

2019 - What's ahead

Kurt extended his stay in the Shire back in 2017, inking a deal that will see him remain a Sharks until at least the end of the 2019 season.
