1. Position


2. What team do you most look forward to playing the most and why?

Any team we win against

3. Favourite Food?

BBQ Steak and any sort of fresh Fish

4. Favourite Band or Musician?

I’m a bit of a rock guy from a mis-spent youth in NZ. But since leaving Aotearoa also partial to the latest dance stuff

5. If you could attend any sporting event in the world, what would it be?

It would have to be a RWC Final, or the Super Bowl, or maybe beach volleyball??

6. When did you last score a try?

2 seasons ago at training while easing up towards the try line after burning the touch line against Head Coach Niall Moran who had just “strained” his hamstring while thinking he had closed the gap on me!!!!

7. Growing up who was you all time favourite rugby player?

As a kiwi the big deal at the time was Michael Jones and John Kirwan. But also Buck Shelford. More recently Richie McCaw just because of his phenomenal commitment to park everything else in his life to achieve his goals as a rugby player.

8. Who is your funniest teammate?

I would have to say Benny McManus, just a funny guy in a good mood nearly all the time. And Derek Farrell, because some of his Whatts app snaps are of someone that enjoys living!!!!!!!!!

9. What is your favourite website?

Anything rugby related.

10. Who is the best dressed in the squad?

Apart from me obviously, it’s got to be anyone of the McGowan triplets, anyone that’s mistaken for Zac Efron must be doing something right!!

11. What teammate is most likely to avoid paying for a round when you are out?

The boys will probably say me. Because I don’t really drink with them too much. I don’t know if the coach needs to be in a corner with 5 fellas around him at 3am and they want to know why they weren’t selected that day!!

12. What training drill do you dread the most?

I don’t. I love training.

13. What is your nick name?

I used to have one back in NZ. Al. No explanation given.
