“I pride myself on being really honest with the players around me and the management group. I am who I am, I’m not trying to be anyone else. Skill set wise I know what works and what I believe in, and I drive that. The players appreciate being honest and not sugar coating anything. They thrive on detail and we make progress”
Steve’s passions are travelling with his family, rugby, cars and his highlights apart from getting married and having a daughter are becoming a bank manager and hiking to Mount Everest base camp in 2014.
