Q. What attracted you to the club?
I was playing at the Warriors, but I felt like I needed a bit of a change. The culture cemented my move here, everyone around town was saying how great the culture was, and it is true.
The comradery of the mates I have made at the club now, it is a good feeling to come and play footy at North Park.
Q. Who do you see as your toughest opponent and why?
Some of the Harrow teams we have faced have been tough. They are just a very well coached outfit and they can play dry weather footy in wet weather. The first time we played them was in pouring conditions and they were just moving the ball like it was dry. They are big boys and they know what they are doing.
Q. What makes you get out of bed on those days where it's not likely to reach 10 degrees and hasn't stopped raining in days?
You don't want to let your teammates down so that would be one of the main reasons. They're getting up and putting in effort so it makes you want to run out alongside them too.
Q. Who do you rate the most around the club?
I enjoy Brett's (Hargreaves) coaching style. He gives you a great idea of what he wants out of you and he is very clear and precise and makes it easy for you as a player. He is great to have around the club.
Q. What is the greatest piece of advice you have received as a player?
To back yourself and your skills. If you make a mistake, it doesn't matter. Mistakes will happen, but just back yourself and carry that belief.
