how did you get into derby? Picked up a flyer in my home town and went along to a game. I had seen an article on derby in Vice and they made it look insane so I was expecting a bunch of psychos punching each other up (which it obviously wasn’t). I don’t remember much except an intense feeling of “I need to do this right now”.
best derby memory? I don’t really have one. I just like playing sports with my friends
what do you do other than derby? I mainly just drive my boat up and down the river, hang out with my friends and grumble about how much trash there is in London
anything else we should know? I really love Aotearoa. It’s a truly excellent place and I recommend you all visit.
