12 picks in 8 games during the 2014 season and my Great Britain call up.

Playoffs against EKP, we had the opportunity to force them to forfeit, however we chose to play the game instead; ultimately losing. It showed class from my team mates as we did not want to be given anything, we wanted to earn it.

Work hard, trust what is taught to you, keep your head on a swivel.

What do you eat the evening before a game?
Food.

What would you say is your biggest inspiration?
To be the best I can be.
