Although one of the youngest members of the squad, Luke has established himself as a regular first team player since his debut three years ago.
- Why did you start playing rugby?
I started playing tag rugby in primary school as I was rubbish at football, then played league at secondary school and playing for Birmingham Bulldogs and then finally started playing union when I was 19.
- How long have you played for ERFC?
I’ve played at Erdington for about 3 years.
- Why did you choose Erdington RFC?
I didn’t intend to play, I got in contact with Steve Morris about doing some voluntary coaching with the minis and juniors, then played my first ever senior union game before I had even coached a single session. It just kind of happened.
- Any pre-match routines/habits?
Visit the toilet a couple times and spend most my time deciding if I should wear pink boots, black boots or a mix.
- Best rugby memory?
Best rugby memory so far is either playing at the Twickenham Stoop or the ERFC Pershore Tour.
- As a forward, what’s your opinion on the ERFC backs?
The backs are some good lads, not as good looking as the forwards though.
