I played football first and that was my first sport until I was 12, that’s when I started to play rugby. I basically lost interest in football and I always loved rugby, my father and uncle also played rugby.
Interestingly, my dad wanted me to play football as he loves football! I played in goals in football then started rugby at under 11s.
Only so much you could do in goals! So much more to do in rugby, more skills and more fun and appealing!
I was a good player. I was a bit bigger compared to the others. As I went through secondary I became quite small and they became physically bigger than me at 16-17 then I eventually caught up.
