Post Bonjour!
Hi all, I have been looking around and just noticed this introduction column, Doh!

Anyway, I just joined Saturday and have been having fun chatting and arguing away with some great folk on the SH board since then.
Born in Wales, I am a late starter in rugby as I was whisked away to Canada at age 3 where I lived for 10 years with my folks. It was baseball in the summer and ice hockey in the winter and judo in the evenings all year around. Then life was turned upside down and I came home to Wales where I suddenly had to wear a school uniform, argued with my French teacher, argued with my Welsh teacher and generally couldn't settle in until the games teacher saw that I was fairly swift on my feet. Rugby found me and I found rugby, romance, no looking back!

Some facts:

Although born in Wales, I consider myself French Canadian.
My favourite colour is yellow.
I enjoy the sound of bagpipes.
My favourite rugby team are the Scarlets.
I can't swim.
I have been coached by the legendary Grant Batty.
When watching rugby on TV I sit in a referees strip.
I have no finger prints.
My favourite player of all time is Wade Dooley, second is Eddie Butler.
I am allergic to tree bark.
I consider Australians to be English people with a funny twang.
I live in England.
I have worked in Gorden Ramseys Hong Kong resturant and burnt a soufflé in front of him.
I have a phobia of puppets, especially Kermitt the Frog.
I am on course to and inevitably next year due to residency laws will win my first under 20 cap for England.
All the above facts are 100% bull s***!

I look word to debating, agreeing, disagreeing and laughing with many of you, chat soon. Au revoir!

I think we need to throw you in deep water to test if you were lying or not.

Hello anyway.

The tackle was fine we all agree.

Despite a childhood living away, I am from and live in Swansea.

I would just like to clarify that the facts I was listing are all false and for a light laugh, just in case anyone mistook Wade Dooley as my fav player! Phew!

No-one believed that.

Wade Dooley doesn't even feature in his OWN list of favourite English International lock forwards who were also coppers.
