The research for this was a bit rushed, but I am pretty sure it is accurate.

A latecomer to rugby, JFK first came to our attention during the 80s as lead guitarist with US punk rockers "The Dead Kennedys". However, after a court in Virginia found that his failure to be dead while on stage constituted misrepresentation, he was forced to quit the band. His career then drifted for a number of years, marked by a number of ill-conceived projects such as his collaboration, with sister Sarah and cousin Nigel, in a spectacularly awful concept album "Spot the T***er" (JFK records 1983).

Finally turning to sport, he first showed his ability with a series of barnstorming performances at left back in the Liverpool team that came to dominate domestic and European football.

Since his retirement from the round ball game, the lure of the oval ball has grown stronger. Finally his dream came true and he was recruited into the LI Academy. From there it was only a matter of time before this talented and versatile performer was turning in a starring performance for the first team. Good luck to you "young" man.
