    Dan made an immediate impact with his defensive mindset.  His Union experience had him familiar with the general concepts, and his League debut was sensational.  He has an impressive fitness level and his tenacious approach to the game makes him an impact player at multiple positions.  Recently he came back from college to step into a Hibernian rugby game and his presence was felt immediately.  Towards the end of the game when everyone was gassed he was able to stand in and complete the game; which went down as one of the more memorable games in the recent rebirth of the Hibernians.  His attention to detail manifests in his critique of Facebook grammar; let’s hope that type of manic behavior leads to continued development of his League skills.
