- Apples. You can do lost of things with apples. You can grate them. Chop them. Juice them. But today, we will be making them into apple pies. I made apple pies for a pie drive, I'm raising money for the sick and hungry. When I make apple pies, I like less sugar and more cinnamon. Mum said to me, 'Not too much sugar.'
- Apple pie is a great food to make during wintertime. You can make them for a get together with your family or a cozy night at home.
- To make apple pies, you will need: Sugar.
- [Instructor] Cinnamon.
- [Teacher] Nutmeg.
- [Instructor] Apples.
- [Teacher] Butter.
- [Instructor] And pastry.
- To make the apple pies you will also need: A bowl, round cookie cutter shapes, a peeler, tablespoon and teaspoon, a piemaker, a knife and a wooden spoon.
- Now for the method. We'll mix sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon into a bowl.
- Next, we'll peel and core the apples.
- We'll put the apple in the bowl, with the sugar and spice and everything nice.
- I'll put the switch on. Open it and here's the butter. And now for the pastry. We will use two different shape sizes. The larger one for the bottom. And the smaller one for the top.
- Put the larger pastry on the bottom, like this, then spoon in the apple mixture.

- Good, thanks Josh, thank you very much. Yeah, I'm very, very excited, I'm very excited to be standing here with you and doing this interview, thanks for having me.
- We are looking back at the 2000 premier win, how did it feel to win that season?
- Well it was very, very exciting. I think the two years before, we won the premiership in 1998, and so the win in 2000 was a very big moment for the club, and we had an amazing team. I was lucky enough to play in the Broncos team for most of that year, then unfortunately, I got injured halfway through the year, but it didn't matter. I was obviously still proud to be part of the Broncos team and glad to see them go on to win.
- What was the highlight of the season?
- I think the highlight, I think is, I think you know, you achieve so much when you win the Grand Final. I think, you train so hard, and training for that season started back in November, 1999, so, we had already a few, six months, of preparation, and then to go all the way and to win it was very, very special.
- How did you feel about missing the final from the injury?
- Yeah, obviously, disappointed, I would have loved to been out there with the boys, but in saying that, just great to be part of the team and to see them succeed. I think, if anything, for the players that didn't take part, we still very much felt part of it, and I think that inspired us to try and do our very best for 2001, but it was a great win.
- How many hours training would you do a week?
- Oh geez, that's a good question. We're very lucky to play football at this level. Football is a job for us, so we're training pretty much every day so, you know, you'd probably be up towards to 30, 40 hours a week, you know, just in preparation and getting ready for the game, probably more sometimes but as I said, we're very lucky to do what we do.
- What was it like working with Wayne Bennett?
- It was fantastic, yeah. I was very, very lucky. I arrived at the club in 1995 and being a young person, and getting to work with Wayne, he was great for us in that he helped us, not just on the field, but off the field as well. We had a great team culture, loved being around all the players, who are great leaders as well. Wayne had a very big influence on my career so I was very lucky.
- Are you interested in other sports?
- In other sports, I am, actually. So I'm a father, I've got four kids, and they play lots of different sports, so I love following their careers. I guess they were very little when I was playing, so I love it now that I can watch them play. So I've got soft-ballers, I've got two Rugby league players, my boys play Rugby league, my girls play Sevens rugby, another daughter plays a bit of soccer as well, and they all play volleyball for the school, so we've got a lot of sport going on at our house, so love, love all those sports, yeah.
- Do you ever, ever get free Forex?
- Do I ever get free Forex? Geez, that's a good question. Now, I probably should say yes, because they're a great sponsor. Yeah, I reckon, I did. I reckon I did, yeah.
