What made you nominate for the Committee?

I felt the time was right to step up and offer my services to a great club which I have a great passion for.


What is it that you love about being a Viking?

I love the way we play rugby. I get a real buzz when we win as a club. The Red men culture, Club, team, me. I really enjoy the mateship and the friends I have made during my time here.


What is your favourite memory as a Viking?

2016 2nd Grade GF victory, and the 2018 Preseason Tour of Singapore. Bloody Steps.


You’re a fierce competitor and a passionate Viking. Which of our rivals are your favourite to play on a Saturday?

My favourite weekend matches.  Every club loves to beat the Vikings, I get a real buzz when we beat QBN, always a grudge match. Royals are tough and grinding games, plus it’s Royals.  Eagles and Owls games are always very competitive and spirited contests. There’s nothing quite like singing the victory song!!!!
