Bonding with the Bull Sharks: Joey Fittock

Name: Joey Fittock

Sport/club: Rugby Union.

Study/work: Studying a Doctor of Physiotherapy at Bond University and currently working as a support worker.

What’s your nickname and how did you get it?

I don’t really have one … some people call me Fitty/Fitzy.

What are you currently streaming?

Probably just footy games on the weekend. I don’t have a lot of time to watch TV.

You’ve got the day off, the weather is perfect and you’ve got money in your pocket. Where would we find you?

I enjoy surfing and playing golf in my free time, so maybe an early surf into a game of golf with a couple of my close mates.

Who inspires you the most?

Seeing my sisters become parents over the last few years and to watch the way they have taken on the role. Looking after my nephews and niece has really inspired me to be a more caring and thoughtful person.

Who is your nemesis?

I don’t really have one. I’m a lover not a fighter.

What’s your superstition?

Socks down during games, always.

If you could invite three people to a dinner party, who would they be?

Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods and Brandon Smith (Cheese).

And if you’re the chef, what’s on the menu?

Starter: Cheesy garlic bread.

Main: Parmi with double salad.

Desert: Choccy lava cake and vanilla ice cream.

What is your greatest sporting memory?

First Australian U20s team to beat New Zealand in the Oceania Rugby (2016).

Who is your most annoying teammate and why?

Dan Boardman: constant pest at training, always complains about being gassed during the session!
