Hello everyone, I just want to take a couple of minutes to remember my good friend Tim Scott. Unfortunately we lost Tim earlier this week, it was a big shock, not just to me but his family and our team ‘Canterbury Hellfire’s’. Tim has been there since day one; I was 13 years old when I met Tim; I couldn’t have met a nicer guy. He played a big part in my journey, not only inside wheelchair but outside in my personal life too. Tim inspired me by all the different challenges he had to go though, as well as his determination. I strongly believe that without Tim I wouldn’t have became the player I am today, and for that I will be internally grateful to him. He wasn’t just a friend, or team mate, he was like a dad to me, he gave me guidance throughout my rugby journey, and its because of this bond that we made, that I will continue to look up to him for guidance and keep him with me always. Hopefully with hard work and determination I will reach my goal of getting to the Paralympics, and when I’m pushing out to play for my country, I will think of Tim and picture him in the stands, shouting for the roof tops, and I will know my biggest fan will be watching, even if I cannot see him. I know with all my heart he will be there. We started this journey together and we will finish it together. I will find a way to somehow carry Tim’s name out with me that day. My thoughts are with his family and friends, during this hard time, Nick I also want to thank you, and if there is anything I can do for you, just ask and I will do my best to help you. I was very proud of him. I always will miss you Tim, and thank you very much for everything. You may be gone, but you will always be remembered.
