|If you could invite any five people to dinner, who would they be? I think I would enjoy a good laugh sitting with the Seinfeld crew at the “Restaurant” in NYC. Jerry, Kramer, George, Elaine and Jacinta of course!|
|Who inspires you and why? Many people have and will, but currently my good mate Benny K continues to inspire and teach me a lot by just being himself. Since day one he has approached his fight with Melanoma with a super positive attitude and still remains to put others (especially family) before himself. He is currently kicking “melanoma’s” arse with that same attitude, unselfishness, and current treatment. Nice work mate!|
|Who’s your most annoying teammate and why? It changes from week to week depending on the poor excuse for not making training.|
|Who’s your funniest teammate and why? There’s a few but Ash Winders is always having a good time, quality dry sense of humour. He has the gift of being the funny guy without having to be the centre of attention.
*He always has hundreds of golf balls to spare.
* Sprays weeds/lawn for local publicans. (mad Monday)
* He can out drink Brad Currie.
* He can pick 9 out of 10 in Keno.
|What’s the funniest moment in your football career: Off-field Probably Brendan Ackland’s pre-game Deaf Joke. On-Field, Ryan Mcdermid’s face-plant over the fence whilst trying to take a mark was pretty funny. Another team mate did it years ago and they were both as funny as each other once you knew they were actually alright!|
|What’s the proudest moment in your football career? First (2000) A-Grade premiership as a teenager was pretty special, especially after losing a team-mate in a car accident a few weeks before hand. And the 2012 premiership as a playing coach at Min-Man is right up there too.|
