||Dad, Garry; mum, Dawn; brothers, Glenn & Steven and
|Which of your elder brothers has given
you the best advice about your football?
||I couldn't choose because they have both been a big
help. Before last year's grand final Glenn impressed on me the importance of playing
my natural game, and that was a big help.
|When you were growing up, which of your
opponents did you think would become the biggest star?
||I came up against Craig Gower in the Harold Matthews
Shield when I was 15, and it was obvious then that he was going to be a great player.
|Was there ever a chance that you would
not play for the Bulldogs?
||No, I was fenced in a bit there. But I never wanted
to play for any other club.
|What was your initial reaction when you
were told Canterbury had signed Ricky Stuart?
||At first I was pretty dirty. I heard on TV one night
that he was either going to sign with Manly or us, and I secretly hoped it would be
Manly. But Ricky has been fantastic since he arrived, and I now realise that his
coming here has been a bonus for me.
|If you were given tickets to see just one
event at the Sydney Olympics next year, which one would you choose?
||The men's 100 metre final, but I'd like to stay for the
women's as well.
|Who are your best mates?
||I have three, Dean Benjamin (Sloppy), John Tait (Taity)
and Stuart Stokes (Ankles). I reckon its important to have mates away from football,
and these guys are my punting and drinking pals.
|At what stage of last year's grand final
did you realise the Bulldogs could not win?
||I'm an optimist, so I'll say when Darren Smith scored his
try with about 4 minutes to go. At least we had the satisfaction of knowing he was
going to be with us this year.
|Name your five favourite things?
||Drinking, punting, golf, females and spaghetti, in that
|Where do you intend to spend New Year's
||At Byron Bay. I went up there at the end of last
year with about 30 others, and its an awesome place.
|What current TV show best reflects your
sense of humour?
|Which part of your game would your dad
say needs the most improvement?
||He'd say my defence, and I would have to agree.
Attack is something that comes naturally to me, and I'm working hard on my tackling.
|What is your favourite pig-out meal?
||Chicken schnitzel and spaghetti, from No Names Restaurant
|If you were on a 24-hour flight to
London, who would be an ideal companion?
||Pamela Anderson. It would be comforting to have a
couple of spare air bags just in case we crashed

Week, what did you read first?
