Teammates - Matt Whitley

22nd March 2017

Matt Whitley recently spoke to the Vikings Media Team for the 'One Club' programme for the game against Castleford Tigers to dish the dirt on his Vikings teammates!

In this new feature in the Club's 'One Club' programme, we get our Vikings players to spill the beans on their colleagues - telling us the things they love about them and the things that get on their nerves! 

Matt has played in every Betfred Super League game this season and has been around the first team squad for a couple of years so is well placed to answer these quickfire questions.


Team Mates is brought to you by our charity partner, Community Integrated Care. To join their fantastic team, and enjoy special Vikings benefits, visit: 


See Matt's answers below:

1. How would your teammates describe you in 3 words?  I'm honestly not sure, you'd have to ask them!


2. Who is the best dressed Viking? Danny Craven - He has a keen eye for fashion.


3. Who would you least like to be tackled by and why? MacGraff Leuluai likes to fly out the line and put a shot on, so I'd have to say him!


4. Who is on their phone the most? Think it has to be Alex Gerrard. 


5. Best taste in music? Jack Buchanan has a pretty good playlist, to be honest with you.


6. Worst hairstyle? Charly Runciman! He just gets a number 4 all over.


7.  Which teammate would you least like to be stuck in a lift with and why? Ted Chapelhow, he's very boring! 


8. You're stuck on a desert island with two teammates, who would they be and why? Olly Ashall and Tom Gilmore. They're both keen fishermen, so they can catch us some good food.


9. Who is the hardest trainer? Hep Cahill, always see him after training doing extra work!


10. What's the best thing about being a Viking? Running out on a Game Day and seeing all the fans cheering us on from the stands.
