What exercises do you do to get such big, muscular arms? – Sean Mills
To be honest, I just follow whatever Ollie Smith does. He thinks he thinks he’s Arnold Schwarzenegger 2.0
Big spoon or little spoon? – David Ilyine
Has to be big. All day.
When did you start playing rugby? – Jordan Doran
I started playing at school when I was in Primary Six, so I would have been about 10 years old I reckon.
To queue jump or not to queue jump? – Peter Elder
Never. Manners cost nothing.
What do you think about Lucio Sordoni? – Pablo Martinez
He’s a great guy. He’s not just a very physical player, but also somehow a very skilful Uno player too – I’ve never seen him lose a game!
What’s it like playing for Glasgow Warriors – govan.lucas
It’s a dream come true. I remember coming along to games with my dad and thinking how cool it would be to be playing for the Warriors, but never really thought I could get there. Making my debut was a day I’ll never forget.
Are you still on your ban? – Joel Hodgson
I’m missing my old flatmate too much. Think I need a couple drinks down in Newcastle to deal with the separation.
What team did you play for when you were younger? – Louise_home
When I first started playing, I played for my school, Robert Gordon’s College, on Saturdays and then I played for Aberdeen Grammar on Sundays. When I got a bit older, I started playing for Gordonians.
Who’s better, Steve or Jane? – Zander Fagerson
My mum Jane’s home baking has to be better than Steve’s.
Funniest name you got called for being ginger? – Obrien_brodie
Sadly it’s a nickname that still hangs on to me now, but Sherman from the American Pie movies.
What’s behind that hand, Gregor? – Ollie Smith
A horrendously swollen cauliflower ear. No point lying.
What’s your secret to being so handsome? – Andrew McInnes
Two haircuts per month and keep the beard trimmed.
Gordonians or Aberdeen Grammar? – aminio.b
Has to be Gordonians.
Why are you so orange? – Matt Minogue
I’m a true Scotsman through and through!
When is your birthday? – jj_mac_9
I was born on July 1 2001.
If you could play in any other position, which one would it be and why? – Taylor Forbes
Anywhere in the backs – basically anywhere you don’t have to maul! I fancy myself as a centre, I reckon…
Which player has the best neighbour? – w2kx
Ollie Smith pays his neighbour to clean his flat. That’s just pretty lazy if you ask me.
Do you like the new kit? – ellisc.2805
I love it. The home is probably my favourite – I love the black and small touches on the design like the shield, it looks really smart.
Why does your ear look so weird? – Murphy Walker
One of my cauliflower ears swelled up really badly. It’s just from working too hard, Murphy.
