“My most memorable tour was the 2011 Rugby World Cup. It was my first World Cup and also my first time to New Zealand. I also played some of the best rugby of my career.
The place that stood out in New Zealand was Auckland. I really enjoyed it there, it was a great city. I also loved our time in Taupo which was a nice place to relax with hot springs by the lake in a quieter setting.”
“We went quade biking with a group of 10 players on a day off in Auckland across woodland, beaches and sand dunes which was great fun.
If I was to give any advice for boys & girls going out on their first tour, it would be to take plenty of photos and enjoy the country you’re in as much as possible. The memories you will create will be some of the best in your life.”
