When did you first get involved with Canterbury? Back in 2009, I came down from Gravesend with a friend who played for the Under18s. After a successful season in the league and beating Blackheath in the Kent Cup, I got the opportunity to play in the men's squad and  learn the trade from fellow back row man Chris Hinkins.

This is your first season back since a spell away.  Where have you been playing? I played a season in Australia for Hunters Hill in the Subbies Premier but the
following year it was time to come back and face reality. I came home, got a job near London and joined a local club Old Elthamians where my skills were mostly orange cutting and water distribution.   Giles gave me a call and here I am.

You are back on a season long loan.  How has it been so far?  Like I never left. It's great to come back to such experienced coaches and the support is like no other club I have played at! 

Do you see any changes in the way Canterbury play since your last spell here? Recent results haven't gone our way but today is a great opportunity in front of the home crowd to show the talent we have. I like to think that with a Fijian international as coach that we play with a bit more flair than before.

Favourite Food: Mum’s Spag Bol. 

Favourite music: Anything Martyn Beaumont (captain) seems to dislike? 

Best moments in your rugby career? Playing my first full 80 minutes this season since 2013. Winning the league and Kent Cup double with Canterbury.
