BY: (about Holt Rugby Football Club) This is where it all starts for everyone, grass roots rugby
NY: It’s well supported here by local people. It’s just a good old local rugby club
You know the next generation of rugby, players to play for England could be at a club like this.
BY: Yeah, my life has changed the last time. I’ve obviously got my wife – Charlotte and my little boy Boris, and from now we are really in our own little bubble such as of our family.
Rugby is a huge part of my life, it’s a huge part of Charlotte’s life ‘cause it has to be and it’s going to be a huge part of Boris’ life, I hope.
Through having Boris, it’s given me a new focus and new drive in rugby. I want to represent him and do him proud. When I hang up my boots, when he has grown up and for him to look at me and go “Pretty pleased and proud of his old man.
Now, instead of going out, I now have to go round to 2 year olds birthday party and have fun. It’s great (laughs)
