What does it mean to be captain of your team this year?

I’ve been part of the system for a while and it’s a great honour to be captain. It’s my hometown and it’s a place I cherish, so it’s a huge honour for me.

What are your expectations for this year’s tournament?

We’ve set huge expectations for ourselves, and it is to go all the way. And I think our preparation can get us there.

Who will score the most tries for your team?

I’m the hooker, so from mauls probably me. But we’ve got expanse backs and great speedsters and we want to play exciting rugby. We don’t want to maul every try, we want to score exciting tries and get some guys on the highlight reels.

I think we’ve got a lot of talent from the front to the back with a lot of skill.

This year there’s a lot of effort by the Varsities and I think it’s important to play a part in making a change. It is a great initiative. It is better than talking about what you can do, it’s showing you care about people.
