How do you feel now the season is done and dusted?

I feel disappointed on a team level as we just fell short of creating history with the three-peat, but also proud of the team throughout the year. A lot of people wrote us off during the year but we showed our quality and just fell short Grand Final day.

Stuck in lockdown, what have you been up to?

I’ve just been getting out for my exercise, running, bike rides and walking. Been having a lot of coffees after the exercise just to get out of the apartment. Also been doing my Certificate 4 in business which is nearly done, so smashing through that with all my spare time.

You’ve got a Bub on the way, those preparations must be keeping you busy?

Yep, a little girl on the way in December. Olivia and I are very excited. Olivia has already been buying her so many things, so I think I need to invest in some more storage cupboards…just getting everything organised is keeping us both busy as well!

What’s your go to form of entertainment during lockdown?

I do enjoy playing Call of Duty. I play with a few team mates and we can chat and have a laugh on that which I enjoy.

Do you have any lockdown hacks to help you through this period?

During lockdown I would recommend doing exercise or getting outside. I usually go for a walk/run/bike ride in the morning followed by a coffee. After that I call my family and friends back home in Adelaide to just catch up and see how they are all going. I just try to get out and about which I enjoy with a coffee. Which I find keeps me sane and gets me out the apartment for awhile.

Got a Netflix recommendation for us?

I have just started re-watching Prison Break again. I really enjoyed it and watched it a long time ago so Olivia and I are re-watching that. If you haven’t seen it, give it a watch.
