10 questions with ... Eagle Parris Laurie

What's your nickname?

It's always been Paz or Pazza. 

Whose number did you wear on your back as a kid/who was your favourite player?

Ever since I left school and started playing I've worn No.25 because that's the same as my brother. 

What hobbies did you pick up during isolation/lockdown?

I took up road-biking. Expensive. But apart from wearing padded bike pants around, probably just a few more board games. 

What's your most-used phone app, excluding social media?

Emails … actually, it's probably Uber Eats to be fair! 

Which teammate would go far in MasterChef?

This is a double-up. Brianna Green and Andrea Gilmore are both elite chefs. Brianna is a pastry chef, but they are both very good.  

If you could be any AFLW player for a day, who would you be and why?

Right now, Emma Swanson. Just because she's doing the firies at the moment and I wouldn't mind being around the firies and what not. 

Worst teammate on social media?

Probably Kellie Gibson because her TikTok is horrific! There's some hard-to-watch dancing and lip syncing.

Which songs are on your pre-game playlist?

It's pretty much just a Nickelback album … a bit of Rockstar or If Today Was Your Last Day.  

Who is the coach's pet and why?

Courtney Guard. She just talks so much and is in everyone's ear, so I'm going to throw her name up.

What's one thing most people wouldn't know about you?

I used to have an addiction to cinema popcorn, and I used to go just to get the popcorn without watching a movie. The people at my local cinema would say enjoy the movie, and then they started catching on and would just say have a good day. It got pretty bad.
