This is me and Ry. I'm touching him in the hope that greatness rubs off. Thats
not a euphamism.
This is me and Ole. Can you believe I'm almost half his age? He is so youthful.
Aims for the season: Being a forward, I suppose I should try and get my goal tally above 1
Trademark Skill: Flick-ons, make sure your gambling in behind
