Take 20: 'My first memory is playing an underage game on the wing. I didn't touch the ball!'
1: Pre-match meal? I love a lasagne and salad. Different guys have different preferences, some based on nutrition and some based on superstition. Mine is based on a bit of both I suppose.
2: Favourite player growing up?
For me it was Andrew Blowers. Although he only played 18 matches for New Zealand he had a remarkable success rate, only losing one game I think.
Of course, he was capped for Samoa before his time with the All Blacks. But it was his time playing club rugby with Northampton and Bristol that I remember best.
He was a hugely competitive player and that's what I admired most about him.
3: Best away-day room-mate and why?
I can't say I have a favourite but I certainly have a pet hate and that's snoring. I am a light sleeper and I always find I need my rest before a big game. I don't like breaking my routine.
Ear plugs are a great investment for any aspiring rugby player!
4: Who would headline your house party?
The Killers. I am a massive fan and would love to meet them in person.
5: First song they would play?
I would say 'Mr Brightside'. That would definitely get the place hopping. It is one of my favourite tunes and also a good pre-game tune.
6: You win the lotto, what is the first thing you would buy?
My own desert island. It would obviously have to be a big win like the EuroMillions, but I can keep dreaming anyway!
7: Favourite movie?
I would have to say 'Forrest Gump'. It's just one of those feel-good movies that you can watch over and over again. It also has a pretty decent soundtrack which I listen to from time to time.
8: Favourite TV show and why?
I am really hooked on 'Game of Thrones'. It's one of those shows that you watch a load of episodes in a row.
It's also a big favourite among most of the players here so it's one that guys are always chatting about when we are travelling.
9: Earliest rugby memory growing up?
My first memory is of playing an underage game on the wing. I literally didn't touch the ball once. It's a great life that those backs have! Because of my height I suppose I was destined to find my way into the second-row though.
10: Who is the joker in the dressing room?
11: Favourite holiday destination and why?
It has to be Las Vegas. There is never a dull moment in Vegas and always something crazy and unique to do there that you wouldn't see anywhere else in the world.
12: Favourite away ground to play at?
Welford Road. There is always an incredible atmosphere there. It was a place I saw quite a bit when I was playing in England and always loved it - but didn't always win there unfortunately!
13: Three people (dead or alive) who you would invite to dinner?
Michael Parkinson, Robin Williams and Hunter S Thompson.
14: Most memorable moment in rugby?
My Heineken Cup debut away to Toulouse. I came on in an away game which we actually lost in 2010. But it was great to play against such high-class opposition in a close cup game.
15: Do you have any pre-match superstitions/rituals?
No, I just try to stay as relaxed as possible and not let things bother me. Sometimes unexpected things happen before a game and it's important that you don't let external factors affect performance.
16: Who is the best player you have played alongside and why?
George Smith, I think. He is a fierce competitor and a really nice guy as it happens.
17: Who is the best player you have played against and why?
Sinoti Sinoti - he is an absolute force of nature and left me chasing on the pitch unfortunately.
18: Can you tell us one interesting fact about yourself?
I once sang on a UK top-40 single.
19: Name three things that are always in your fridge?
Ham, cheese and some kind of dessert.
20: Best advice you ever got?
You'll always regret what you didn't do, not what you did do.
