My aim with this site is to provide a forum where I can share my views with rugby enthusiasts, whilst simultaneously providing greater insight through behind the scenes accounts of the world of professional sport We’ll trace my time at the Sharks, Springboks, Ulster, Munster, Lyon and Biarritz and see how this journey has shaped me; both as a player and as a person. Seasoned fans (as well as those recently intrigued by the sport) will discover that there is much more to the modern game than the events of the 80 minutes. Props typically come into their prime later than most, so here’s hoping the best is yet to come.
