    Why I play wheelchair rugby?

    After being a Firefighter for 10 years it fulfils aspects of that career that I miss. Now I play professional rugby and play wheelchair rugby at an elite level. I enjoy the tactical and side of the game and competing for Great Britain.

    Background / other interests outside of sport:

    • Former Firefighter in South Yorkshire.
    • Travel
    • Spending time with my two daughters and family.

    Favourite Sporting Moment:

    Double European gold medalist and Rio Paralympian.

    Proudest Sporting Moment:

    Singing the National Anthem representing Great Britain before the games at the Paralympics in Rio.
