You had another solid year last year and actually passed 5,000 runs for the Waratahs. What are your goals for the coming season?
Amazing and privileged achievement to pass 5000 and goals from here are to continue to add experience and value to the Tahs with the youngsters and help them develop and have them dominate at 1st grade level.

You have played cricket all over the world, including stints in the New Zealand first class system as well as in Canada. What is the most interesting place you have played a game of cricket in?
Very lucky to have played all over the world. Recently in the off season I played a one day match in Niagara Falls Canada. The scenery was majestic.

You are now working for Spartan sports and live a great life travelling around the globe. What is the best thing about working for Spartan?
So many great things to be part of such an innovative and exciting company. Creating new products such as coloured bats which go global, mix with some incredible world class players and genuine humans, see incredible parts of the world and have the opportunity to help youngsters smile and be the best they can be with the best cricket equipment

Our first grade side is again one of the strongest on paper this year. Where do you think the season for 1st grade will be won and lost?
It certainly is another great side on paper but consistency week in week out with both bat and ball will be a big factor. Identifying key opportunities to take a game and individuals to have belief and stand up to win them.
Once we get this we would like to see more wins than losses
