Would you rather have been born in Wales than Oldham?

I wouldn't change anything. Everything in my life is Welsh.

Will rugby league and rugby union grow closer together?

Maybe, in the future. It depends on what Mr Murdoch wants.

Who is the greatest sporting figure of the century?

Muhammad Ali, without a doubt.

What was the last film you saw and was it any good?

Austin Powers. It was OK, but I don't really see him as a role model.

What was the best piece of advice you were given as you grew up?

To enjoy everything I do. I was told that by my father and I've tried to follow that advice in my rugby career.

Apart from Leeds, which other rugby league team do you want to win every week?

Shaw Rhinos, the amateur team I coach in Oldham. We lost the local cup final to the team that Barrie McDermott coaches.

Where in the world would you want to live, if rugby was not a factor?

Oldham.

Which sporting event would you pay pounds 500 to watch?

World championship boxing.

Which language would you like to speak fluently?

Welsh.

Are you excited by the prospect of the Welsh Assembly?

No.

Now that you share a sponsor with Michael Owen, which flavour of crisps would you like your name to be linked to?

Umm. Salt and vinegar, and cheese and onion have gone. Leek?
