Newtown’s speedy fullback/winger has just returned from France and is keen to make an impact on the Intrust Super Premiership NSW competition.

My footballing dream is… to be playing in the NRL within a few years.

I’d describe the way I play as… an off-the-cuff style – a player who tries to get his hands on the ball as much as possible.

My sports idol as a kid was… Brad Fittler. Growing up in the eastern suburbs I always supported the Roosters and he was my favourite player.

If I was handed $1,000,000 now I’d… have to be boring and put it towards buying a house.

I wish I was more… interested in other sports because I’m very biased in my love of rugby league!

Life is… like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get.

I supported Sydney Roosters football club as a kid because… everyone in my area went for them and after they sent a few players down to our training I was hooked.

My favourite childhood footy memory is… playing at half-time of a Roosters game when I was about 10 with all my mates.

Few people know I can… speak French as well as pull off some mean card tricks.

Outside of football I… am a plumber working for a business run by my dad, Clovelly Plumbing.

With my final $10 I’d… buy a chicken schnitzel roll from “The Char” at Bronte.

In 20 years’ time I… will hopefully still be plumbing and still living in the eastern suburbs.
