How Sharks lock celebrated lockdown birthday

Sharks lock ANDREW EVANS tells how he celebrated his birthday during the lockdown.

I turned 23 on day six of the lockdown.

I woke up to a delicious home-cooked breakfast made by my family and girlfriend Rochélle.

I then opened my presents and got some really nice stuff! I got a book on money management, clothes and some fitness equipment. And I treated myself to a massage gun before my birthday!

We had pork belly on the braai for lunch, before relaxing by the pool and jacuzzi. And to end off the day we played some board games. 

If it weren't for the lockdown, my ideal birthday present would have been to have had a massive braai with my whole family and all of my friends. Once everything blows over it is definitely something I still want to do.

I also wanted to go for dinner and a movie with Rochélle, but I'm just glad we got to spend my birthday together!
