He is a tenacious player, who was nominated for the prestigious 2017 NRL Awards as Hooker of the Year. Unlike most 21-year-olds, Danny is somewhat of an entrepreneur. While his career on the paddock is flourishing, the 21-year-old is proof you’re never too young to start thinking about life after football. In this case as a professional barber. Danny has a professional commitment to his chosen career and this is why equilibras™e-flips™ have a role in maximising performance potential.
