  1. Why did you start playing rugby?

 

I started playing rugby just after I left school because I was getting fed up with football becoming softer.

 

  1. How long have you played for ERFC?

 

Half a season.

 

  1. Why did you choose Erdington RFC?

 

I’d just moved house and was getting over a bad knee injury and wanted to get back into playing rugby so I googled local clubs to where I lived.

 

  1. Any pre-match routines/habits?

 

Wake up and have a bacon sandwich and a strong coffee, then head to the ground. Then look busy till kick off.

 

  1. Best rugby memory?

 

Coming on in my debut for Erdington and scoring my first try.

 

  1. As a back, what’s your opinion on the ERFC fowards?

 

Great pack that can dominate games and they work very hard. Sometimes too hard and try and do the backs job too, haha.
