RFU.com: What’s been your most memorable England moment so far?
HF: The whole Sevens tournament was amazing, even though we lost to Australia in the quarter finals it was a memorable experience.
RFU.com: Now tell us something unusual about yourself.
HF: Gosh, I can think of a few things. I have a micro-miniature pig who was only supposed to grow as big as my foot and he’s probably now about as tall as I am! I also have other strange animals in my garden such as Lamas, Alpacas and a couple of Wallabies, which is pretty unusual.
