Greg has been involved in various clubs and charitable organisations over the years. He is a past Board member of the Silverdale United Rugby Football & Sports Club. He has enjoyed coaching junior rugby and watching his children play sport and progress through their tertiary education, even though they often tell him off for being a little too 'encouraging' at times.
