  1. Why did you start playing rugby?


Started playing at 9 years old. I was no good at football & watched a few games of rugby & was hooked. Joined the local team, fell in love with the sport & played it ever since.


  1. How long have you played for ERFC?


Since the start of this season.


  1. Why did you choose Erdington RFC?


It’s the local team so went and watched them play. I liked the craic, great bunch.


  1. Any pre-match routines/habits?


Multiple trips to the toilet & getting my hair plaited by the other half.


  1. Best rugby memory?


All the big hits. Nothing better than a big tackle.


  1. As a forward, what’s your opinion on the ERFC backs?


I just thought the backs were meant to be the pretty ones & have brains.

But seriously cracking bunch.
