What is your best moment playing Touch? Being able to play in the 2005 U21 World Cup mixed final after being ruled out with a fractured foot from a previous round robin game. We then won the final and I scored a Touchdown.

What are you goals for the World Cup?
Firstly the major goal is to win GOLD, secondly to have tonnes of fun with the girls enjoy the world cup campaign with an exciting contingent supporting the other teams and share the experience with my family who will be there supporting us too.
