Rob skates for deadly Sharks

Rob Rintoul is one of Cayman’s best skaters and locals can see him in action this week.

Rintoul is slated to suit up for the ClubHouse Sharks in the 2012 national roller hockey league. Hosted at Kings Sports Centre, the Sharks are expected to contend with the Flames at 8.10pm on Tuesday, 20 March.

Heading into this week, Rintoul is among the league leaders in scoring and assists. He is part of a formidable line-up featuring talents like Dan Etherington. They will be against a rookie Flames squad that has much to prove.

Tuesday’s other encounter pits the Gamebirds against the High Rollers at 9.10pm. While new in name, many of the players on the Gamebirds are veterans like Eric Mildenberger, Brendon Malice and Rob Leadbetter.

All have propelled the squad near the top of the league. Meanwhile the High Rollers have had to rebound from a losing start to the season behind established players Derek Bruce and Darryl Hather.
