TEN QUESTIONS:

What is your dream position on the field and why? Try line straight between the post, best place the score!
Who is the hardest bloke you have ever played with? Easily Tim Molenaar, currently at Gloucester, when he was at Nottingham even the coaches were scared of him
Was your professional debut memorable or forgettable? 10 minute blood replacement when I was 18, I remember it so I guess it was memorable!
What are your redeeming features - physical? Had to look up what redeeming means, maybe put my mullet in the category but that debateable!
What are your redeeming traits - personality? Still not sure what redeeming means so I’ll go with my general intelligence
Best moment in rugby? Gaining promotion with Nottingham from the old National league 2
Worst moment in rugby? Missing 9 out of 10 kicks at Whitchurch in a second team game, and the one I did get went in off the post!
Are you angry or a sulker in defeat? Difficult to say I go through phases of both depending on the type of defeat
Which rugby player do you admire most from past or present? Barry John from the 70s with Wales and the Lions magicial! Current day Rupeni Caucau, just silly!
Where was your best rugby-related night out? Scarborough, the beach!
