Australia for the weather or Biarritz in SW France as it has good weather, beaches and surf.   
Where and when was your favourite rugby moment?
There’s two really. Winning the National 3 Championship at Twickenham and winning a 7’s tournament in Coutances with the Men of Leisure. We had been beaten in the final the year before but 2010 was our year.   
What do you think was the best game of rugby ever?
1972 Barbarians vs New Zealand. This showcased what is great about rugby with some amazing play. It also showed some of the best hairdos and facial hair to ever grace the rugby pitch.

Youngsters can go to Jersey Rugby Club on a Sunday morning. Any person over 17 can train and play with any of the Junior rugby teams in the Island like Banks, Beaches, Les Quennevais or Jersey 2’s (I played for Banks Rugby club before playing for Jersey).
