|2.||Nickname||Coop, Coop-dog, Coops, Moaty|
|4.||Previous Clubs||Swinton Lions|
|5.||Earliest Rugby Memory||The first season I played rugby was 2004. I had no idea of the rules at all and I hated it when my team had the ball, I just wasn’t interested in attack. All I wanted to do was defend and tackle people as hard as I could. I earned most improved player that season.|
|6.||Best ground you’ve played at||Leigh Sports Village, capacity of 11,000 – although not that many showed up when I played.|
|7.||Rugby Idol||Brian Lima and Sam Burgess|
|8.||Best dressed team mate||Benno Stubbs|
|9.||Worst dressed team mate||Louis Critchlow|
|10.||Worst training drill?||The famous ‘mid January Gary Hodge commando roll in the mud.’ I must have spent hours doing this with a handful of people at training in horrendous conditions and can honestly say that I have never felt the need to do a commando roll in a game and if an opposition player ran up to me in a game and did a commando roll, I’d put them so far through the turf mid-roll, that they would never do it again.|
|11.||If you didn’t play rugby, what sport would you play||Professional Chase The Ace Player|
|12.||Favourite rugby moment||RWC 2003, South Africa v Samoa. On 61 minutes, Brian Lima introduced 19 year old Derick Hougaard to his right shoulder. I would imagine poor Derick is still winded now. This is why I started playing rugby.|
|13.||Celebrity lookalike||Raul Moat|
|14.||Which 3 famous people would you have over for dinner||Tommy Cooper, Adam Ashley-Cooper & Henry Cooper – a real family get together.|
|15.||Last try you scored||Tries are for wingers... You should be asking about the last big hit I made! Tony Mac trundled the ball in towards me, having been out injured for 6 months and assuming he'd take things easy. I wasn't thinking the same thing and smashed him. He hit the deck making a noise that can only be described as the mating call of a Yukon Bull Elk.
