What is your earliest memory of playing for Shammies?

My first game I tackled someone by pushing him 3 times towards the sideline. The ref said “If you do that again you’ll be sent off”.

Do you have any pre-game rituals?

I always ask my parents if I have everything so I don’t leave anything behind and I always wear the same pair of socks. And stretch.

The Mosman Game in 2017… it was pouring rain and we all got really muddy and I got man of the match for the second week in a row.

Kicking a conversion from sideline verses Randwick in an U12 semi final to put us ahead with 2 minutes to go. The Randwick boys were calling out ‘Lolly legs, lolly legs‘ as I kicked so it was very very satisfying.

Go for it. It is great fun with a great bunch of lads. Made a lot of friends through rugby.
