Additional information

POST-RUGBY
"I do farm a bit with my dad and I like the financial world, so maybe going into the financial sector after rugby. Maybe I will head abroad for a year or two. My wife (Estee) is a medical doctor. We have an agreement that she will follow me around while I'm playing rugby, and after that I will follow her around if she wants to work somewhere." (rugby365.com, 7 Oct 2016)
