Relive any 'non-sports related' moment in your life, what would it be and why?

My passing out parade in Bad Lads Army, a truly special day.

I've had lots of good moments and success, but never a real “champagne” moment.

Enjoy a 'champagne moment' again in sport which one would it be and why?

The rugby World cup, 2003, I was too overwhelmed to really enjoy the England victory!

Not be asked one question for the rest of your life what would it be? “Can you come round and have a look at my computer please? Its doing weird things..” I get that daily.
Be a celebrity for the day who would you be?

John Cleese, then I could get away with being “silly” for a whole day.

Be a sports star for the day who would it be? Mike Catt.
Have dinner with 4 people from the past or present who would they be? John Cleese, Mohammed Ali, Thom Yorke and J. R. R. Tolkien, with some Vodka to spice things up.
Witness one event from history what would it be?

Tough one, but its swaying between the first steps on the moon or the Berlin wall collapse.

Go back in time and give advice to a 13 year old Tjobbe Andrews what would it be? Keep playing rugby! So disappointed I stopped playing it, and also to leave catering earlier.
Win any sporting event in the world what would it be?

Think it would have to be Wimbledon! Not that I'm any good at tennis but because of the place, the tournament and the emotion the winners get when they win.

Try out a new sport what would it be? Rally Driving in an ideal world, but seriously – football.
Have one extravagance what would it be? A 1962 Austin Healey 3000 MK II. In red.
Only ever eat one meal again what would it be? Cheese and Bacon Sandwiches, with mayonnaise, beautiful...
Live anywhere else in the world where would it be? Germany, Berlin preferably. Great place, so much history and culture in one place.
Support any other Rugby Club which would it be and why? Harlequins, actually! Always had a soft spot for them, back to the days when Jason Leonard, Keith Wood and *cough* Will Carling where there at the same time.
Tell us a claim to fame what would it be?

I was on ITV's “Bad Lads Army”, last year, I was one of 30 recruits and made it all the way through. Loved it.

See into the future what do you expect to be doing in 10 years time?

I'll still be running my own Web design company, NOW:design, But have more success, more employees, bigger clients and an Austin Healey 3000 MK II in red.

Only ever drink one drink again what would it be?

“IL Falcone”, an absolutely stunning southern Italian Red Wine, great with anything.

Do any other job other than your current one what would it be?

I can't see myself doing anything else, as I'm in my ideal job, unless I was a professional rugby player (yeah right, dream on).

Change one thing about yourself what would it be?

Give up smoking.

Buy one player from past or present to play in London Irish colours who would it be? Easy, that would have to be Keith Wood, my all-time favourite, what a legend.
