    "My scars tell a story. They are a reminder of times when life tried to break me, but failed."

    Koerstzy

    Who was your rugby idol growing up, and why?

    Chris Whitaker - always played above his weight and always did the job required for the wallabies when the opportunity presented itself. Despite spending the majority of his career warming the pine and not getting on.

    What is your most memorable moment on the field for SUFC?

    Hard to split between winning the 1st Colts GF in 2013 and winning the 2nd Grade GF in 2017 as backs coach with Boido and Ray Hudd.

    Which team do you look forward to playing the most and why?

    I enjoy playing Eastwood. They have been the yardstick for the competition since I started at the club and they are always a good benchmark to see where you are at. Plus the games are always really close and physical.

    What is your personal aim this season?

    Get back on the field after tearing my ACL mid way through last season and start to put some consistent performance together with the ultimate aim of pushing up into the higher grades.

    Who is your funniest teammate?

    Jack 'YoungThug' Stanford
