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

I’ve been involved with the Committee now for 3 years.


What made you nominate for the Committee?

I enjoy the involvement in this great Club.


What is it that you love about being a Viking?

Good people, the best facilities, winning attitude. I have played at a number of Clubs over the years but Vikings has always been home.


What is your favourite memory as a Viking?

Playing in the Club’s very first 1st Grade Premiership in 1994.


You’re heavily involved in the 7s program in the ACT and you yourself were an Australian 7s representative. What have you enjoyed being involved with more, the 7s or the traditional 15s?

During the winter season 15s is always the preferred sport. 7s came about initially as a pre-season competition which players used to get fit for winter. This has evolved massively in the last 10-15 years into a huge spectator sport due to the short game time. Outside 15s, 7s is a fun but tough sport usually with a lot of interstate travel.
