England full-back Zac hardaker is one of the livelier characters in the dressing room so the Leeds Rhinos man is THE perfect CANDIDATE to face the taxing questions of our Tackle Six feature
How do you like to relax? Feet up, TV, maybe a nice cup of tea shortly before so that I can put my belly out and take a rest. It’s either that or I have to go out with my mates and have a good time. I like a bit of comedy on the TV, a few films, a bit of sport. In terms of what I would like to eat, it could be a host of things, a kebab if I am chilling out! What song would you like to be played at your funeral? Oooh, that’s a bit dark isn’t it? I’m not sure about the actual song but I’d like it to be something that I am remembered by. I’m a lively character, I’m outgoing so I don’t think I would like it to be dark and dingy and everyone sat there crying, I think I would like everyone to celebrate what I have done and achieved in life.
perfect start Hardaker made his England debut in last year’s Autumn internationals, scoring two tries against Wales
What would your superpower be? I think it would have to be having the ability to fly. When it’s snowing and a bit rubbish weather in England I would fly to Spain, if it gets a bit cold there I would fly to Australia, fly to Hawaii, fly to America and then back to the UK to see my mum. When are you happiest? Receiving man of the match awards or being with my girlfriend and friends, I like to be socially active. Who did you model your game on as a youngster? Growing up I used to watch Kris Radlinski. I was fascinated by him. He had electric pace, no-one could touch him. Now I try to take a bit from everyone and try to do my own thing as well. Which words or phrases do you most overuse? I’m from Pontefract so I am a bit broad Yorkshire, so ‘how you doing, old cock?’ is one I use a lot.
