The 131 Seconds With… interview series profiles Canterbury Cobra members and players, as the latest part of our 131-year club history.
Name? Simon Beardall.
First club you played at/were member of? Canterbury Junior Football Club.
Favourite Position? Half-Forward Flank.
If you could swap one thing with another Canterbury player or member, what would it be? I’m gonna be greedy here, but Jake’s kicking ability, Bubba’s “average” rig, Ana’s leg speed and BGA’s marking/spoiling. I’d then nominate for the next AFL national draft!
Favourite sporting moment (personal or from a player/team you support)? Making and playing in the Grand Final with Canterbury in the SFL a few years ago. A few of the older boys understand that we still have some unfinished business to attend to.
Hidden talent off the pitch? I can cook a mean salmon steak/fillet on the BBQ. It has been known to impress the fillies…
Best piece of advice you’ve never forgotten? Precious few are born with it, even fewer know what to do with it.
Your favourite thing about the Canterbury Cobras Football Club? The vibe amongst the playing group and our ability to take the mickey out of each other.
