What’s your favourite (rugby!) position? Wing, I’m currently having my arm twisted to try other positions in the back
How long have you been with The Leeds Hunters? About 10/11 months
What experience did you have of playing rugby before joining The Leeds Hunters? Only playing at school, and I wasn’t overly interested at the time.
What made you take the plunge and decide to join The Leeds Hunters? Primarily the reason for joining was to meet new people and make new friends, however I quite enjoy the rugby side of it too!!
What is the best bit about being a part of The Leeds Hunters family? Precisely that - it is a family, and I love every single member!
What have been the positive impacts on your life since you started playing rugby? I have had a couple of low points in my life over the last 18 months, including redundancy, a break up and the passing of my grandmother whom I was very close to. These guys have been a rock to me, whether it was a fun distraction to whatever is going on in my life or a bit of moral support and counselling!
What advice would you give to anyone thinking of joining The Leeds Hunters? Do it, even if you have no idea about rugby, or want to get back into it after a few years off. You won’t regret it.
Guilty pleasure? RuPaul’s drag race.
Hero? My mum. Strongest person I know.
