Club Captain – Callum Smith

Games Played for the Vikings: 94


How many years have you been involved with the Club & the Committee?

I’ve been at the Club for 6 years and have been on the Committee for a year.


What made you nominate for the Committee?

Being Club Captain was actually thrust upon me after Josh Hitchins defected to Rugby League. Michael ‘Chic’ Henry wasn’t too keen to pick up the pieces after Hitcho’s tenure so he more or less forced me into it.


What is it that you love about being a Viking?

I love this Club for its mateship, culture, Grand Final weekends and it’s continual encouragement and support for you to improve as a player and a person.


What is your favourite memory as a Viking?

I have a few favourite memories as a Viking.

  • Winning the 2016 & 2018 1st Grade GF’s.
  • Every Grand Final weekend. Especially 2015 where we went 0 from 6.
  • Seamus (my younger, more talented brother) and I playing our first game together


So what’s the story with your long hair? What are you trying to hide?

My hair generally distracts people from my huge head.
