How long supporting LI? 3 seasons
Best ever LI game (Excluding 2002 cup final) LI V Northampton 18/11/2001 ... 48-12 ... Our pack was on fire that day!
Favourite LI experience off pitch (Excluding 2002 cup final) Meeting the players at the Brewery Tap earlier this season, can anyone tell me how I got home please? Oh yeah, and since then ... the day we took a gallon of Pimms to Oxford.
How did you start supporting LI? It all happened after the sad demise of Richmond RFC, after a year with no Rugby at the Madjet ... LI suddenly declared that they would move from Sunbury to Reading ... excellent news I thought!!! and that’s how it all began ...
What are your non-rugby pastimes? Fishing, Digging in the back garden. Reading books and playing on the PC.
Any Irish connection? Well, I went to Dublin a couple of times .....
Most likely to say? No way was that offside!
Least likely to say? That Ref was absolutely correct to send off the LI player ... I applaud the decision ... Well done Sir!
Tell us something about you we don't know. I can’t drink AG !!
