  • Job: Management accountant for a field marketing agency
  • Ruby position: Prop/Fly half
  • Years played for RRFC: Since the club was founded in 2008
  • Age started playing rugby and why: Aged 9. My mum worked in a pub and a regular told her that she should bring her sons along to rugby. The following Sunday I went along to a session and absolutely loved it (Plus I used to get a ‘boys’ shandy in the bar after training!)
