Answers:
1. Why did he not stay with his mother as a child?
She was arrested (for what, we don’t know).
2. Where was he living after he was separated from his mother, until adoption?
He was in foster care, and at some point he was living in a car.
3. What had used to be his sporting dream?
He always wanted to be a sprinter, though he wasn’t quite fast enough.
4. Why did he cry when joined the rugby team in Aspen, Colorado?
He said that he was “putting all his eggs in one basket”, meaning that if this plan failed, he would have no backup plan and he’d be in big trouble.
