Additional information

COMMONWEALTH HISTORY
Competed at the Delhi 2010 and Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games with England, finishing fourth and fifth respectively. (thecgf.com, 2017)


ALL-TIME LEADER
Holds the record for most consecutive World Series tournament appearances with 69, and became the most capped English sevens player at the 2016 Cape Town Sevens, surpassing Ben GOLLINGS record of 70 tournament appearances. (englandrugby.com, 24 May 2017)


UNIVERSITY CHALLENGE
Chose not to represent his university in rugby, as he did not enjoy the social aspect of the team. "Sometimes, when these things are being decided by fellow students, it's not always done on ability. It was more the social side and whether you were prepared to go out and make a fool of yourself on the first night. I wasn't, so I didn't get called up." (rugbynetwork.net, 29 Jan 2008)
