Favourite LI experience off pitch (Excluding 2002 cup final) Meeting Andrea Bray!
How did you start supporting LI? After years of occasionally going to see matches at Wasps, Bath, Reading and Henley I became a committed rugby supporter when Richmond moved to the MadStad. After their demise I migrated to London Irish and found my natural home!
What are your non-rugby pastimes? Sailing, golf, cricket, football, music.
Any Irish connection? Two great grandparents from County Down.
Four years of negotiation with the Northern Ireland gas and electricity regulator and Northern Ireland Electricity plc over a new power station at Ballylumford.
Most likely to say? Scotland is going to win the next 6 Nations
Least likely to say? Mine's a half.
Tell us something about you we don't know. My first rugby coach was Peter Squires, who played on the wing for England in the 1970s.
