Who do you most admire in rugby and why?

Ian Prendiville : I've never seen a big man with such twinkle toes and silky skills. In my year of schools senior cup he scored twice in the final two 30 metre breaks which is what I wanted for myself . Also the man loves a scrum

Most memorable Rugby experience?

Playing for the Irish under 20's against wales. My friend Ross Jones and fellow Castleknock College classmate was playing for the opposition .

What’s the most embarrassing thing that’s ever happened to you?

I had fitness testing early one morning and I needed to run to the toilet quickly before the test began and not too far away the toilet door was open so I ran inside. Little did I know it was the ladies toilet and came out to our female physio "hello Peter you know this is the Ladies" and not since that day have I reported an injury to her . (There's more to the story but I'll fill you in in person) .
