Go-to gym exercise?

My favourite is probably my squat to be honest. It is probably my best exercise.

Favourite cheat meal/resturant?

We have to eat reasonably healthy, but because I am one of the smaller lads they always want me to put on weight so we occasionally pop down to Nandos. I like a Wagamams too, but you can’t go wrong with a Nandos.

The boots you wore in your last game?

I am currently wearing the Blue Adidas predators and they are quite cool. I have been really lucky that Adidas have been really good to me by getting me loads of boots. Every time a box comes, it feels like Christmas!

Any pre-match rituals or motivational tunes?

Not really no. I like to chill out before a game. A lot of the boys like to have headphones in all the way through the build-up to a match, but I prefer to chat to whoever is there. If I do listen to music, it is more chilled out music – a bit of Ed Sheeran! Just before we go out to warm-up I do listen to a special song just to get my head in the game.

Your 'must have' sports supplement?

They have a few things at Quins which we have especially after the gym so like Maxi-nutrition stuff. To be honest, they are just big on us eating quite a bit which applies to me more because I am not one of the biggest lads! It’s all about making sure you have enough of the food groups. Veg is quite hard for me as my Mum has always told me to have it, even know I don’t want it!

Number one beverage in your downtime?

We have to keep really hydrated, but if I had to choose one it would be a can of coke!
