An interesting fact: One of my friends once urinated next to Alan Rickman.

What I would be doing if I wasn’t playing ultimate: I would probably be doing more acting I think. I want to be Tamsin Greig or Andy Serkis, maybe a bit of both.

It’s 16-16 in the final of mixed club worlds. Who’s on the line with you?
Phil “Dependaphil” Boor, Howard “Mr Tumnus” Storey, Liam Kelly (so I can finally have my coat back), Beccie “bobbie” Haigh, Anna “Captain Birds-Aye” Trebble, Rupal “The Rupal” Ghelani and Ryan Tarascas in a wig pretending to be me.

I would like Stu Kinton on the sideline distracting the opposition with his beautiful beautiful face.
I would have picked Arron Reed but he would probably be at another tournament pretending he was on his way to Worlds.
