Favourite Tea had as a casual? (Home or Away) The joint Tea & supper combo we used to get at Colwinstone
I like playing for the casuals because………. Funnily enough I like the people (apart from Matt Linley)
I hate playing for the casuals because………… I sometimes make an arse of myself when I get out.
If I didn’t play so much cricket I’d be………. Dead
Pablo says……. I have 2 surreal moments I would like to share. In Taunton I had to share with John Furnham. I woke up twice in the night. The 1st time I turned in my bed to see the silhouette of his exposed stomach against the street light on the main road outside after he had hoovered up 3 curry's. If this wasn't disturbing enough I later awoke to look down the end of my bed to the open door of the bog where he was having a shit. The phrase scared foe life comes to mind.
The other moment was the Assault on precinct 13 moment, when Steve and Murray stormed our bungalow in Ciao and I had to chase them off at 3 in the morning in shorts and a vest. I caught Murray and he nearly shit himself.
