Rugby ground: Whangamata Rugby Club and College Rifles Rugby Club
Rugby player and why: Adam Thompson
Earliest rugby memories: playing against Whangamata when I had a runaway try. We played in bare feet back then and that day there was a thick frost on the ground. The more I ran the colder my feet got, and when I was five metres out from the tryline I had to stop and sit down with my feet in the air. I never scored the try.
Biggest influence on your rugby career and why: my family and family friends (the webbies and taffy duck). My childhood coaches from Whangamata.
