Q: How did you hear of the Toronto Dingos? 

A: I thought I was joining a rugby team! My rugby coach from home knows Jake Steinberg and put me in touch. I didn't realise until my first training session that it was footy I was playing. Footy's better than rugby anyway.

 

Q: What sport did you play prior to Aussie Rules?

A: Rugby really but Gaelic Football before that.

 

Q: How do you find the cross over, what is difficult/easy?

A: Still finding it tough, a lot more running than I'd been used to. Doing my best to get the skills up to scratch too - trying to minimize the wild kicks.

 

Q: What do you like best about the game?

A: The physicality, although my rib cartilage would disagree right now.

 

Q: For International: how does it feel being an (for eg. Irish) man in Canada playing an Australian Sport?

A: When in Rome is what I always say.

 

Q. What are your favourite things about being a Dingo?

A: We're a tight-knit group and serious craic.

 

Q: What are your goals for the season?

A: I'm aiming for Best and Fairest.

 

Q: You have been a serial 'Icer' for the club, taking over from historic greats such as Sloppy McKay and so forth, will you continue to wage this campaign and do you have a message for the other Dingos?

A: The Ice Queen. Nobody's safe - that includes me; I iced myself in London.

 

Q: Who is your favourite Dingo and why?

A: Shezza (Stephen Donnelly's prized Sherrin football). Yeah nah.

 

Q: Best moment with the club so far?

A: The end of season trip to Montreal was a highlight.
