5-Minute-Interview: I've co-reffed for the Sevens team during the season

I’m good at…………….playing rugby.

I’m very bad at……being sweet and patient.

The last book I enjoyed reading is……….The Road Less Travelled by M Scott Peck.

The most surprising thing that happened to me is………getting a chance to travel to different countries in Africa to train in rugby.

A common misconception of me is………I am a tease. I am not. My face can be manipulative though.

One of my worst childhood fears was………..wedgies. My uncle would grab me and give me a wedgie every time I misbehaved. It was so embarrassing, especially because my cousins would laugh at me.

My ideal night out is…….…at an after party after a good rugby game with my friends having drinks and dancing all night.

In another life I’d have been…a swimmer but my height was destined for greater things.

If I was a politician, I would……keep my enemies closer. So many politicians are mysteriously dying because of outwardly fighting their enemies or wrongdoers.

The best age to be is………40. Looking at all my achievements and being a role model is satisfying.

The best part of my job is………the thrill and adrenaline. The game makes me feel great.

My greatest regret………….none.

Living people I most identify with…………Joe Roff, Matt Burke, Phil Kearns – all great rugby players for the Australian team. Also American businessman Mark Cuban – he is not stuck up even with all that money.

My greatest achievement is………co-reffing for the Sevens team during the season.

My favourite writer is……..…King David.

My greatest possession is….…my skills in rugby as well as barbecuing. My family, especially, appreciates that skill.

If I was to die in five minutes, my last words would be……….Forgive me Lord, I am a sinner.
