In my spare time I have done many jobs, mainly for family and friends in there homes such as, laying laminate floors, fitting doors, decking, fitting kitchens etc. I have done this for many years and enjoy finishing the work I have done to the best quality and keeping the customer extremely pleased, which in the long run has created more work for me. Over the last ten years I have played Rugby at many levels, the highest being playing for one of Rugby Unions top teams – Leicester Tigers and also being selected to play for the North of England squad. I’ve had good experiences with Doncaster R.U.F.C, Leeds Tykes and Wheatly R.U.F.C winning a wide range of trophies in many tournaments around the UK and had the experience of playing in Canada against some great teams in really nice places around Canada. In playing such a high contact sport I had to be fully committed, this involved attending training twice a week and also going to the gym at least three times a week. I have applied this attitude for every club I represented, which has boosted my confidence in working as part of a team. I am fully prepared to go that extra yard and put myself on the line to get a winning result.
