In 2014 he signed a contract to play rugby union in Japan with the Coca-Cola West Red Sparks. One of his main motivations was to earn enough money to fund treatment for his father, who had been diagnosed with prostate cancer, and his siblings Elizabeth and Joe, who both have cystic fibrosis. "Family is number one, and when you're put in a certain position, you will come to that conclusion and just do whatever it takes. I wanted to get a safety net in an account just to be ready for troubling times ahead." (dailymail.co.uk, 03 Apr 2016; couriermail.com.au, 22 Feb 2015)
