First Job: Mobil service station in New Zealand. I was 16 and had just been expelled from school.
A talent you wish you had: Does x-ray vision count in this one?
The best advice given to you: "A man can't run with no legs"
(From my Dad back in my rugby playing days) (I still live by that)
What cartoon character best describes you? "Pinky" from Pinky And The Brain.

Do you prefer women with or without makeup?
Hmm... I don't like it when it's caked on - but, sure, it can help...

Now, do you prefer brains or beauty?
Honestly? I'd have to say beauty. But then you're opening a whole new can of worms... ie. What does beauty mean to Rabbit??? Fun, smiley, good looking... You don't have to be smart to impress me!

What is the worst pick-up line you have heard?
Something about 'taking the stars from the heavens and putting them in your eyes'. (I think that line's in a Scandel'us song now - go figure...)

So what turns you on?
Big you-know-whats and a firm bum. Ha ha! I just know you'll edit that out! (jokes on you Rabs - we didn't!!!) - Ed.
I love a tight body - someone who works out...
And someone who's not afraid to laugh!

What turns you off?
People that are too cool to laugh and know-it-alls. (It's OK to not know some things!)

What song best describes you?
Man, that one's too tough! Pass.

Big boobs or big heart?
Oh man! Do I have to choose??

Are you a boxers or jocks guy?
Boxers - but not the loose, silk ones - the tight fitting ones.

What was the most memorable moment about your first date?
Ahhh... Annabelle... "Lady In Red" playing as we skated around Skate-a-rama in Auckland... (That, and being scared about whether my lips would get caught in her braces)

Do you hog the remote control?
Are you kidding?? Absolutely!

What is under-rated in this world?
The excitement involved in a game of Football.

What is over-rated in this world?
Celebrity status. Some people spend their whole lives trying to achieve it - and, not that I've been there, but I think there's more important things to worry about. (Like being happy) (Been there many times!)

Do guys like girls in glasses?
I love the secretary look!

What is your idea of a romantic date?
Spurs Steak Ranch on Parramatta Rd, 1kg steak, and (wait for it), 2 sets of knives and forks!! Whatta ya reckon??
(I'm not really into the romantic date thing really) (I think just spending time together can be special enough. You don't need to go anywhere or do anything - just be together.) Ohhhhh! What a guy! - Ed.

Are girls obsessed with their body image, more so than guys are?
I think so. Guys can get out of the shower, suck the gut in and think they look a lot like Brad Pitt, and if we do have a bad day, we know that the best thing for it is to have a beer, turn on the telly and forget about it.

Do you believe in love at first sight?
Absolutely.

Are you a cat or a dog lover?
Cats are arrogant! I have a dog called "Fish" (Seriously)
(Ask me about it one day - it's a really sad story)
She's beautiful! I'm a real dog lover.

Who is the bigger flirt? Guys or Girls?
Both - although I think guys are a lot less subtle.

Does vanity exist in males?
Yep, of course. You kid yourself that you look OK and it helps builds self-confidence.

Do you believe in astrology?
Not really.

Who gossips more? Guys or Girls?
Both do it - but I think girls are still ahead on that one. Sometimes guys just don't care enough.

How far would you go to win a girl's heart?
I stopped a girl at the airport as she was about to head back overseas.
(That was nearly 6 years ago) (See question 11)

Why are many guys so reluctant to say I love you?
Because you can't take it back. I think we should be a little selective with who we say it to and when, otherwise it loses it's meaning.

Do you like girls who play hard to get?
Nah, not really. I don't like mind games. If you like a person, let them know and give it a go. Life's too short. (Mum always says that)

If you could bring only three items with you to a deserted island, what would you bring?
Rugby ball, Radio, Computer on the Internet.

Do girls who have been around the block too many times put guys off?
Nah, I think it's OK so long as you don't have to hear about it.

And a question that we girls have always wanted to know the answer to - what do guys talk about in the toilet?
Nothing! It's a very weird, uncomfortable moment when you walk into the toilets and there's someone you know in there. It's not a time for chit chat. "How's your day going?" and "Keeping busy?" are both allowed - but that's about it.
