The Rock Hards come into IFL Season 3 as of the oldest teams with the average per-dueler age being almost 37 years (note: the team’s media guide does not list an age for Minam Go). Captain Aristotle Kruger “The Anvil” Allen and Assistant Captain Dust Cameron need to hope that with age comes experience and guile as opposed to soft bellies and late-season fatigue. In addition to age concerns, Kruger (a first-time captain himself) fields the only team that has absolutely no prior IFL experience. Thankfully though, his team’s not totally without unarmed fighting skill as over in the Duel of Fists, Rachael Douglas currently holds the Emerald rank, Dust Cameron, Tex Wellington & Onyx Solare are Jades and Jonas Drava and Kruger are ranked Glass. The remaining dueler, Minam Go, has no known fighting record, joins IFL at the Trainee rank and weighs in as the lightest dueler in the league (who isn’t a rat) at a scant 100lbs.
The early part of the season will set the tone for The Rock Hards as they’ll face off against the top two teams from Season 2 in Weeks 1 & 3 and a new playoff caliber team in Week 2. With only two teams slated to miss the Season 3 playoffs, Kruger needs to get his team off to a quick start and never look back.
