    Personal profile:

    Having represented his country at schoolboy rugby and played semi-professional rugby whilst a medical student it was inevitable that he fulfilled the medical stereotype and became an orthopaedic surgeon.

As an orthopaedic surgeon his problem is that he is no good at golf!
