St. Brendans College Yappoon
Yappoon is about 1/2 an hour east of Rockhampton here in Queensland.
Boarding, sports classes, man up classes ( WHAT IS MAN UP CLASSES? ) Oh yeah, so its like woodwork.
I only play league, i have been playing rugby league since grade 7, i use to play union & soccer
FOOTY TEAM - Cronulla as they have signed me up,
MUSIC - I'm into stuff like Jack Jones, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, not into all that rap stuff tho'
MOVIES - can't say i watch too many movies, i'm usually too busy training, mucking around outside and just being with me mates. There is always something to do out doors
LETS TALK ABOUT SOME FOOTY
The QLD Vs NSW Under 16's game at Telstra before the 1st State of Origin was the toughest, it was a very fast & physical game, i loved playing in it.
Yeah it was a good experience, it was very loud, the crowd was really loud when anything happened. Telstra was very slippery too, just sorta like slippery.
Our 2nd rower Corbin Simms & our half back Ben Hampton were real good
Their half back Harry Seijka was real handy, very handy & William Hopaote is a super star, he was their danger man
Nah, no more club rep games, there are plenty of school footy coming up tho' we have the Confra Shield & the Arrive alive Cup coming soon too
I play for Rockhampton Brothers & also my school, St. Brendans College
# 11. I play 2nd row
The 2nd ROW, i love it. I love doing the hard yards & gettin down & dirty
GOOD, we are undefeated in our local school comp, we have made the finals of the Con Shield & we are in the finals of the Super 8's
Yeah, we already beat them to get into the final of the super 8's, they are a good side, it was a good 1st half with both schools close, our coach really got up us at half time, we came out in the 2nd half with a better attitude.
MACKAY SHS WOULD HAVE BEEN HAPPY ABOUT LOSING ? lol, nah they were spewing
Ah nah, not next year, hopefully at the end of 2009 and i hope to be playing in the Toyota Cup Under 20's competition.
They have signed me for 2 years, they wanted it to be for 3 years, but after talking to my parents and that i decided to go for the 2 years, they have 1st option after that. Go the Sharkies
Dunno, I just love getting in there, the tackles, good hard runs & just always trying to get all the 1% ers right I suppose
