It’s hard work keeping up with the latest technology

I get a little bit frustrated that we always seem to be one step behind. You get the latest gadget, and then the next one comes along. So you never feel like you’re quite up to date without spending a fortune.

I’ve just got an iPhone

My mates have got them too. I’m fully Mac’ed-up at home, so it’ll slot in perfectly with my iMac, MacBook Air, Shuffle, and all my other kit.

I love push email

Goodness knows what I would have done without having my emails sent to my hand rather than having to go to my computer. I don’t know how I got by before. Plus, my iPhone plugs directly into my Audi S5. It’s the best gadget in the world.

I download my music

I’ll go out of my way not to buy CDs any more, I’ll just download them and back them up and have them ready to go. My iTunes is networked around the house, with AirPorts everywhere.

Technology has changed the game of rugby forever

It could be anything, from the way that the boots are designed – studs or blades, where the laces are on the boots – to the kit. They used to play in baggy cloth shirts, and now they’re all streamlined. Technology makes an enormous difference to the game.

I’ve played myself in video games

I played against Paul Grayson who was a fly half, and we were playing ?on the same team in real life. I was quicker than him in the game, which was strange because in real life he was always quicker than me. So the stats aren’t always right.?
