Vikings Rugby are currently supported by arguably two of the finest medical professionals in Canberra, if not Australia.

Dr Peter Cole

Dr Peter Cole

Dr Peter Cole moved to Canberra in 2011. He graduated from Nottingham University in the UK in 1999 before completing his postgraduate GP training in 2006. He moved here with his wife Katie who grew up in Canberra and he has 2 children Alex and Josie.


Peter enjoyed several years playing rugby into his mid 20’s before retiring from the front row where he spent many a season playing Hooker. He played much of his rugby for Nottingham Medical School and his home town of Stourbridge. These days he tries to keep fit by running, cycling and playing tennis.


Combining his love of sport with work is an ideal combination hence his decision to do further post graduate training in Sports Medicine. Whilst enjoying his life as a GP he has also really enjoyed working as a Sports Doctor learning how to manage the whole variety of sports injuries. Prior to starting work with the Vikings Peter has also had an association with the Queanbeyan Tigers AFL club and the Brumbies development squads.


When not working as a GP or Sports Doctor, Peter can also be found assisting some of the Canberra orthopedic surgeons in theater. Should anyone need to see him then he is happy to see people at his Sports Clinic in Bruce,, Tel 02 6247 7222 or his General Practice in Jerrabomberra, Tel 02 6255 8112. Please call his receptionists to make an appointment.
