If not working on his fitness in the gym, you will find this guy on a rugby field somewhere, whistle in hand making sure the open side flankers are entering the ruck contest correctly (if only Richie McCaw had been penalised throughout his career).
He has improved his technique and strength across all movements through patience and a super strong core.  He is an absolute pleasure to have in the gym, always smiling, always up for a chat and most importantly has a strange love affair with Australian sports.

What would be your dream workout?
For time: 50 burpees, 50 pull ups, 100 alternating single db hang clean & jerk

No mistakes, just happy accidents

Getting a chuckle from both teams when penalysing a player for illegally stamping an opponent in rugby, and saying "if you try something like that, don't wear bright coloured boots, you're making it too easy for me"
