How long have you been involved with the Wheel Blacks?
What do you love about wheelchair rugby?
It’s dynamic, it’s rough, it’s strategic...playing makes me forget I’m in a chair.
Which team do you look forward to playing the most and why?
What’s your best memory with the Wheel Blacks?
Discussing the merits of rhubarb crumble at dinner.
Who is the funniest teammate?
If you could be another player for a week who would it be and why?
Hayden...so I could deliver massive hits, throw the length of the court and have great hair!
Favourite song genre?
What is your pre game routine?
Do some solid two-on-two, offensive & defensive plays...get all fired up so I hit the court switched on.
Sending my Shout Out to my beautiful whanau who make the space for me to be able to play.
