“The Toronto Nomads and the Ontario club rugby system and the entire Ontario rugby union were big parts of my career and then, obviously, Rugby Canada. My family, my teammates and my friends have all been so supportive over the years and I can’t thank them enough. As for my coaches, I feel that I’ve learned something from every single one of them along the way. They instilled values in me within rugby but also within life.

“Yes, I love the game and love playing the game, but I’m happy where I’m at right now and what I’ve done.”
