Team: S&C coach (All sports)
Originates from: Somerset
Coaching Qualifications: RFU Level 2; RFU Referees Award
Teaching Subject/Job Title: Sports Performance Coach
Playing Background: I have taken the opposite path to most players. I started in the back row, then moved out to the centres, finishing up in the back three.
I played through school and university, detouring via Rugby League for a few years, and more recently for Wiveliscombe RFC.
Favourite Rugby Player: Michael Hooper (brilliant all-round player) or Shane Williams (shows how the game can be for all shapes and sizes, if you have the heart).
Favourite Rugby Memory: Either finishing in the top 25 in the world for the 2015 IRB World Cup fantasy rugby, or my first ever training session as a twelve year old and nailing the tackle technique. This provided the bedrock which my game was built on for the fifteen years to follow.
