  1. Why did you start playing rugby?

 

My father passed away when I was ten, he was a boxing coach and I used to box at a very young age. But when he sadly passed away I turned to rugby league as one of my childhood friends father asked me to try rugby and it just went from there really.

 

  1. How long have you played for ERFC?

 

I’ve played for ERFC for around two years.

 

  1. Why did you choose Erdington RFC?

 

I came to ERFC because I had some good friends who I used to play with at Aston, Cleggy Jnr & Barney, and it just looked both a good social & a quality team with bundles of talent.

 

  1. Any pre-match routines/habits?

 

Used to be a McDonald’s & a pint, but nowadays it’s a Ribena & something sweet to eat.

 

  1. Best rugby memory?

 

My best rugby memory has to be when I was playing for Aston Old Eds around 7 years ago when we beat Old Halesonians 55-0 at home. They were top of the league, unbeaten & previously smashed us at their ground. I scored a hat-trick and managed to bag myself 32 points as I was a kicker back in them days. The score was insane as we were mostly defending on our try line throughout the games. I think Mr Cleggy Jnr may have been involved in that game as well. It was an incredible day!

 

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

 

Well I am a forward but I’ve spent around 10 years playing as a back but our backs are class, hard to keep up with when there’s a quick breakaway but yeah, we have so much talent in our backs.
