1.NameMatthew Parrish
2.NicknamePaz, Moonface, Big Head
3.PositionNumber 8
4.Previous ClubsI’ve only played for Bolton
5.Earliest Rugby MemoryGetting recruited in Bolton town centre aged about 21! A load of fat lads with smashed faces made a beeline for my mates and tried to convince them to play rugby - I was the only one who decided to give it a go. I played my first game at tighthead prop weighing about 12 stone wet through, took me a while to recover from that!
6.Best ground you’ve played atThe theatre of trees of course
7.Rugby IdolMartin Johnson, a giant amongst men, a great rugby player and an inspirational leader on the pitch. Always used to love Sebastian Chabal until I made the mistake of watching him play for Sale.
8.Best dressed team mateCan’t think of anyone at the club I would describe as best dressed! Mike Singy has got some Ironman underpants though, so that has to come pretty close!
9.Worst dressed team mateGot to be Nick Sandbrook, looks terrible regardless of outfit
10.Worst training drill?Anything that involves running
11.If you didn’t play rugby, what sport would you playNo idea, keep thinking I should learn to play golf
12.Favourite rugby momentWhen we got promoted the first time beating Silloth in the playoff
13.Celebrity lookalikeThe fat kid from up:
14.Which 3 famous people would you have over for dinnerKevin Bridges, Mickey Flanagan and Ant & Dec – they only count as one person because they’re so small.
15.Last try you scoredAgainst De La Salle last weekend, a fantastic 95 yard dash to the line…
