Let’s see where life takes me....
What does this mean????
In non sporting related items, many inspirational figures Mandela, Churchill, basically anyone who acted in difficult or adverse situations. I have a few sporting heroes and could go on for as while but these are the main ones; BOD/Keith Wood (Rugby), Ben Ainslie (Sailing), Bergkamp (Football);Michael Johnson (Athletics)
Not great with heights.......
What can most people do, that you cannot?
Any remote talent to dance, sing or anything artistic, but I do attempt with enthusiasm!
You have the choice to live with a gorilla who knows sign language or a dog who sings lullabies, which do you choose?
Gorilla hands down. I would need someone to communicate with otherwise I would go mad.
If you could only play one sport for the rest of your life, it would be:
Golf (not that I can play!), potentially just edging it from Squash and Tennis due to the potential to play to a reasonable standard for the longest period of time.
Most embarrassing situation suitable for publication online:
I’m incredibly clumsy but I think the one that probably wins was falling over in a 200m race while I was about 14, which I’m sure a few of the other members will remember with fondness as it was in front of a rather large grandstand (I was even winning at the time!)
First thing you would save in a fire?
Greatest sporting achievement:
Our 1st XV season was pretty good, as was the record on tour in South Africa
What will be the title of your memoirs?
Bigger than any man

Dream holiday destination?
Any one of the world’s largest city
90s TV show that you are most desperate for the return of:
The return of Johnathan Creek didn’t go so well, so maybe they are all best left in the past
What animal are you most like?
I have been told Bear/Elephant/Rhino, no idea why.....
Cartwheels for six hours a day for the rest of your life, or a fire-extinguisher for a leg?
Cartwheels as this is only a disability for 25% of the time
