    I hate it when… When someone acts or speaks with disrespect. You respect your elders and to gain respect you have to earn it. Oh and people who eat with their mouths open!
    I can’t live without… My laptop
    If I wasn’t a rugby player I would be… Probably playing competitive touch or wakeboarding
