Jacob, can you introduce yourself?
My name is Jacob Afflick, I’m 27 years old, and I come from Newcastle, Australia, a small town 2 hours from Sydney.

Did you follow the Elite 2 championship before you come?
Yes I followed the Elite 2 competition from afar.
You can play fullback or winger, what do you prefer?
I prefer to play fullback, although I’m happy to do a job on the wing if that is what the team needs!
What are your ambitions for next season?
Ambitions for next year are to see Villefranche wolves promoted into the Elite 1 competition and hopefully return and push to win that championship as well.
