Greatest Achievement/ Proudest Moment?
My proudest moment was in 2019 playing for the Reds in Durban against the Sharks. I am from there originally and all of our extended family is over in South Africa still. We were able to beat the Sharks in South Africa for the first time since 2004, and I got man of the match in the game. It was my first time playing in front of my South African family and was just awesome to share that moment with them.
What was your first car?
What was your first car? My first car was a 2007 Volkswagen Polo which I got second hand in 2015. It has about 25 stickers on the back windshield and has been on a lot of drives out to country races despite being a small city car!
If you could join any past or current music group which would you want to join and why?
I would join Florida Georgia Line. They are two country blokes who would be seem to have great fun and have music for any occasion – can get you up to party or just stare out the window!
If you could drive anywhere tomorrow, where would you go and why?
I would drive to Moree, where one of my best mates has a farm. I love getting out to the country and also enjoy getting away from the busyness of the city. It is my favourite place to relax.
What’s your favourite movie and why?
My favourite movie would probably be 8 Mile. I am a huge Eminem fan and love the rap battles at the end. Otherwise, I could watch the Harry Potter series over and over.
What’s one fun fact about you?
I still have a baby tooth! There was no adult tooth to push it out so it has stuck with me.
