Doh! Club captain of Bandon RFC, Tom Ferguson answered last year’s questions instead of this year’s, but we’ll forgive him this time, especially after the fantastic season Bandon are after! Take it away,Tom

Rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10 on how funny you are? At a guess, I’d say 5.318008.

Highlight of your sporting career so far? Captaining Bandon RFC.

Most dialled number on your phone? At the moment, with the weather, anything work related. If anyone is looking for a few tonne of feed I’ll look after it. No ifs, no buts, you’ll get your nuts! (Tom works in Southern Milling, an animal feeds company). 

What’s your karaoke song? The worst version of The Streets of New York you’re ever likely to hear.

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself? I still have a bump on my forehead from getting hit with a hockey ball in the second year of school. 

Who is your sporting hero, local and International? It would always have been David Wallace growing up.

If you won the lotto what would you buy first?

A robotic milking parlour for Timmy Crowley so he’d be on time for training and to keep Fuller quiet. 

Separated at birth, who’s your celebrity twin double? Some say Nathan Carter, others say Neil from The Inbetweeners, depending which side you look at me from. 

What’s your favourite word? Would definitely be ‘white’, if you ask the forwards. 

If you could change any part of you what would it be? To have the singing voice of club legend and bag-man Johnny Canniffe.

Your most treasured item of clothing? A Munster jersey from 2001 signed by the squad.

Favourite cartoon? Coyote and The Roadrunner. Never gets old. 

If I was an animal then I would be..... a Tom-cat (do you see what I did there?).

What question would you liked to have been asked in this interview? Is Olan Crowley really the legend he’s made out to be?
