When did you first play rugby?

Perhaps ten or 12. That was at a club in Longford in light of the fact that we moved there for a little while prior to returning to Dublin. Then, at that point, when I went to Wesley College it turned out to be more not kidding.

Did you play some other games?

We played a great deal of sports at school – tennis, cricket, football. I likewise played football socially – that is the game I began with.

What positions have you played?

I began in the back column and was there until fifth year, then, at that point, at 17 when I previously went to Leinster (foundation) they moved me to loosehead prop and the following year I went to tighthead. I incline toward tighthead.

What are your qualities?

My ball-conveying is the primary one. My handling is very great for a first line and my game mindfulness.

You joined Connacht the previous summer…

They came in with a proposal after the U20s (Six Nations). It was a senior agreement and I felt I’d get more game time.
