How long supporting LI? Watched first match at Sunbury around 1991/2, then occasional games, then got hooked full time when they moved to the Madstad. This season is the first for some serious away games ! (tilt)
Best ever LI game (Excluding 2002 cup final) Got to be this years double against Tiggers
Favourite LI experience off pitch (Excluding 2002 cup final) Toulouse away tour last October. Priceless !! ;-))
How did you start supporting LI? Friend of mine's business sponsored a match in the 1991/2 season and it went on from there.
What are your non-rugby pastimes? Next youíll be telling me there is no Father Christmas ?! Must be drinking, I suppose.
Any Irish connection? I know Murph and Maloney !!
Most likely to say? Oh, go an, just one more then !
Least likely to say? I better go home to the wife before the bar shuts !
Tell us something about you we don't know. Once lent Noel Edmonds a fiver (and made sure I got it back !).
