Pre-match music?

Bit of everything, really. It can vary but a lot of Oasis on the playlist at the moment.

Cheat meal?

Burger or pizza.

Hobbies away from rugby?

I like to travel whenever I get the chance. Really enjoy city breaks. Day to day I’m doing an online business course, which keeps me busy.

Ideal holiday destination?

Mallorca. I’ve been there a few times and it’s a cracking spot.
