Pick up line: “Be unique and different – just say yes”

Best Saturday night ever: Grand final wins with Kobs. My 21st was pretty large too…

Scariest Moment in Life: Being a passenger on a 4 wheel drive trip and totally sliding off the road when real muddy. Another 100m down the road and it would have been a cliff. Just not being in control was the worst bit…

Best advice from your Parents: Think, try your best, and have fun

Last beer before you die can be shared with one Kobbie: Tough call. Too many good blokes in this club. Probably my old school mate Bryce Morley ‘cause of the history there. It also wouldn’t be just one beer…
