Colin Doyle says he hasn’t seen much Western Lacrosse Association play this season, but he knew all about the Langley Thunder and the roster they put together. And now that he’s preparing to play the team that eliminated that mighty Thunder roster, he knows what he and the Six Nations Chiefs are up against as they open play tonight in the 2013 Mann Cup. “That tells me a lot there,” Doyle told The Times Colonist. “That’s a pretty good team we’re playing, a team that beat a very good team just to get here.” But Doyle and Chiefs believe they’ve got a pretty solid roster as well, and now that all the preparation is done, there’s just one thing left to do. “Everybody’s champing at the bit and we’re looking forward to it,” he said. “We know Victoria is on the same type of roll and that’s how it goes. There are no secrets from here on in.” Doyle, a 6-time National Lacrosse League champion, is playing for his fourth Mann Cup title.
