My favourite memory of Andrew is the Sunday night in Perth (well it was probably Monday morning by then) where we convinced him to go back to his hotel and wake up everyone there to bring them back to the skate bowl for drunken knife fights. Unfortunately we managed to lose all the balls very quickly so we just threw bottles of water at Rob instead. Andrew also designed a team shirt that comes close to ours for inappropriateness. Nice work! Here’s a little more about Andrew.

What do you love most about bike polo?
Andrew didn’t answer this question so I’m going to say he meant to put “Anyone that comes from Sydney”. Thanks Andrew!
