“A few of the lads were quiet in the gym, and I just came out with a quote just as a laugh.

“Matty (Peet) loved it and got on to me about doing it every day but it’s just a laugh.

“It’s something to look forward to for the lads.

“I do a bit of research but some of the lads come to me with some funny jokes.
