Rob Merrett

Team beefcake and international man of mystery Rob Merrett. He has been with us for just over a year now and has come such a long way in that time...he is now able to colour co-ordinate his outfits, pluck his own eyebrows and his sashaying is now out of this world...he doesn't too bad at rugby either. We're not sure whether he joined to the team to get back into playing a sport more regularly or whether his wife Jane just wanted some piece and quiet. Anyway - here is your insight into the man himself. If you want to see more of Rob then look no further than the Viaduct Showbar Leeds most weekends where you'll find him tearing up the dancefloor.

Name: Rob DADDY Merrett

Position: Prop

When did you join #TeamHunter? February 2017

What convinced you to come to your first Hunters training session? And what was it like?

It was portrayed as a fjn training session aimed at everyone no matter of age, skill or fitness level. I joined because I wanted to lose weight and get fitter. 
Joining that first session was quite nerve racking. However the nerves were soon gone through being welcomed.

What have you enjoyed the most about being a Hunter and what is your favourite memory so far?

The most enjoyable thing about playing for The Hunters is the pride I have when I pull on the jersey looking around at those I'm playing with or training with and realising the are more than just team mates they are friends.

Best memory was the first rendition of “Proud Mary” on the way back from Liverpool especially which has since become our club anthem.

What does being part of the Hunters mean to you?

Being a Hunter to me means that I am part of something special. I am changing opinions of who can play Rugby not just sexuality but age as well.

If we asked the team, what three words would they use to describe you do you think?

Daddy, funny and Winger
