After Brumbies Super W co-captain Michaela Leonard took centre stage last week, the tables have turned back to the Super Rugby squad as Brumbies prop Scott Sio tackles the Q&A.

The 28-year-old confirmed his playing future in the nation’s capital in May 2019 when he signed a three-year contract, so he’s destined to keep playing a huge role in the forward line for a few years yet.

The loosehead prop made his debut for the Brumbies outfit back in 2012 and has accumulated over 100 caps for the Canberrans.

Sio made his international debut for the Wallabies in 2013 and was a key member for the green and gold when they finished runners up against New Zealand at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Here is what Sio had to say.

1. Favourite thing to do to unwind in Canberra and why?

A: Playing golf with my teammates. Although frustrating at times, mainly because of my skill set, it is a good change of pace from the rugby field.

2. Must see places in Canberra for visitors?

A: The view from the top of Mt Ainslie. A walk around Lake Burley Griffin. Parliament House and GIO Stadium, of course.

3. Favourite thing about Canberra and why?

A: No traffic. Makes it easy to plan things spontaneously day to day.

4. Go-to coffee order?

A: Small double shot flat white.

5. Best memory of your time with the Brumbies?

A: Our win over the British and Irish Lions here in Canberra in 2013.

6. Funniest teammate?

A: My roommate Folau Fainga’a. Bit of a joker that kid.

7. Teammate who should be the next bachelor?

A: Guy Porter. Good rig and terrible banter. Tailor-made for a show like that.

8. Favourite hobby outside of rugby?

A: Golf, Fortnite and binge-watching Netflix and Stan.

9. If you could have a superpower what would it be and why?

A: Super Speed. The Flash has always been my favourite superhero.

10. First memory of the Brumbies?

A: The team beating the Crusaders in the Grand Final in 2004. Watching my favourite player growing up, George Smith.

We are back with an exciting Q&A next week with Super W 17-year-old rookie Zali Waihape-Andrews!
