In the Spotlight - Tommy Hurse

I played all through high school from 1990 - 1994, then for uni at USQ in Toowoomba from 1996 - 2000. I then moved to Darwin in 2001 were I have played for the Crocs ever since.

Goals for this season?
To be competitive in the finals in As. To win the GF in killer Bs.

Anything else to add?
Currently going through a mid life crisis and have moved from the centres were I have played my whole life to hooker in one week after listening to a drunk Paddy Bree! I generally observed this as a slow progression in ones career over several years as he reached his twilight years. I starting to feel that the metamorphosis that has taken place is irreversible! My body hasn't fully recovered since - thanks Paddy (I'm secretly loving it)...
