My perfect holiday would be . . . A decent break in Greece. It's somewhere I haven't been and it looks like one of the most beautiful places on earth.

But in reality I'll be . . . in Berhampore city, chilling like a villain.

My best summer ever was . . . every summer in New Zealand is the best, purely because I'm surrounded by my family and friends.

The best thing about 2013 was . . . definitely being named as an All Blacks apprentice and going on tour with the team. Being a part of the All Black history was amazing, and I was able to rub shoulders with a bunch of players I had looked up to and watched while I was at school.

The worst thing was . . . losing to Canterbury in the 2013 ITM Cup final. Myself, and the whole team, wanted to win that game for Wellington soooo bad, so we were pretty devastated about that game. We'll get them next year.

In 2014, I'm most looking forward to . . . having a good season with the Hurricanes and Wellington Lions. Being a part of those team environments is something I really enjoy, so I'm looking forward to getting into it. I also have a number of off-field goals that I'm looking forward to pursuing.
