Impact rugby had on your life:
The great game raised me to a level that now I have to live up to for the rest of my life... Still working on it.

Most inspirational teammate/coach and why:
My college coach and All-Black great Pat Vincent told me what I could do on the field before I knew I could do it. That made doing it easy - well, easier anyway.

What wisdom would you pass on to current players:
If you're a forward, run with the ball until you see a back to pass it to. If you're a back, run until you see a forward with the ball and I'm sure he'll pass it to you.

Marital Status (Spouse/Kids names):
Single, 2 Children Sarah and Jeff - both married, I'm blessed with 5 Grandkids. They call me Gramps and I love it.
