How long supporting LI? Since the game went professional
Best ever LI game (Excluding 2002 cup final) Winning the Powergen Cup Final 38-7!
Favourite LI experience off pitch (Excluding 2002 cup final) The first time the away supporters met in Newcastle, we all thought everyone knew everyone else but the reality it was the start of 2 or 3 years of a strong travelling support group.
How did you start supporting LI? Went to Northampton, no one talked to me, so next weekend went to Irish (I live between the two) sat in the west stand and within 5 mins the group of 4 sat 2 rows in front of me realised I was on my own, invited me down to sit with them and handed me a Guinness, loved the atmosphere and bought the shirt after the game and have been following them since.
What are your non-rugby pastimes? Work and reading and scuba diving
Not not percentage? 100% - Not Irish (nearest I am to that is conceived in Ireland and named after the drunk in the camp site bar…), Not from Reading, Not from London, don’t even really like the colour green!
Most likely to say? Who’s for a guinness?
Least likely to say? No thank you I have had sufficient……..
Tell us something about you we don't know. I am a professional Scuba Diving Instructor
