How did you get into rugby?
“Both my brother and sister started playing when they were eight years old, they were at Burton Rugby Club… My dad took me and a group of friends down after a sleepover, when I was younger I always said ‘Why would you want to roll around in mud all day?’, but when I went to the first session I loved it.”
Were you always a talented athlete, or did rugby strike a specific chord with you?
“Yeah, I always played all the sports at school, but just really enjoyed rugby outside of school, and then went to college when I was 16 in a rugby academy (Moulton College). So yeah, I think it’s just something I’ve always enjoyed doing, I just love spending time playing rugby”.
