Josh told No.1 Magazine in 1988 that he couldn't stand
Mauler, and that he was a real moron. If Mauler and Josh
came face to face, they'd have ended up killing each other!

Joshua was worried how Mauler McCaul would be perceived

gridiron crew provided the series with lots of great
comedy compared to Gripper's thuggery.
WHERE IS HE NOW...?
Josh trained at Italia Conti and after spending time as
a drama teacher in New Zealand, Josh has returned to live
