I haven’t done it in a while but I hate seeing food go to waste. We didn’t have a lot of money growing up and my Mum couldn’t really cook and if we didn’t eat her cooking she would say we’d have to starve. I think that’s when my sister and I really started appreciating everything.

When I started at Souths the team couldn’t get through all the fruit they provided and we were offered to take it home. I realised I wouldn’t be able to eat that much and decided I would give it to those who would. I was seeing someone at Glebe at the time and near the train tracks you could see all these tents. I took the left over fruit, put it in the back of my Ute, parked up and just walked down there and gave out some fruit. I did it a few times whenever we had left over stuff in pre-season.

I don’t do it as much as I would like to now but hopefully if I establish myself as a role model in the game I would like to do things not just for the poor but the extended communities out West too. It’s hard when you are a nobody, you don’t get as much pull but definitely if I establish myself as something I will, if I can make a difference in anyone’s life, try to implement something.
