Max was born in the cheese city itself, Gouda, and he is studying a bachelor degree in marketing and sales at Rotterdam Business School. Max loves playing rugby with his friends at his local club RFC Gouda where he captains the U-19 team.
As a team, RFC Gouda played in the cup for a season, which was a huge achievement for a small local club.
“I would like to inspire people with the magic of rugby like others did for me when I was growing up. I am also really exited to see the different cultures and countries.”
