Ten days, eight flights, 22,000 miles, five VTs, four live broadcasts, and most importantly one team....
I’ve always known the importance of the ‘team’, my sport background has taught me that more often than not the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. A team working together will often beat a team of individual stars. Football, rugby, cricket, name your sport.

But being tackled by a professional Aussie rules player? That's dedication...
