Chris Smith

Chris's dad (middle) in action for Scotland during that legendary game at Twickenham

Date Of Birth 18/12/81
Place Of Birth Edinburgh
Big Team Celtic
Wee Team Tranent Juniors or Hibs
Favourite Player Ever John Collins
Position Older members of the Real squad are already making comparisons between Chris and Stevie Weir - in other words, he is equally at home in the centre of defence, the centre of the park or the centre of the opposition box
Distinguishing Features Overall solidity, general footballing nous, reluctance to resort to the long ball game
Lookalike Joe Swash, AKA Mickey Miller out of 'EastEnders' - or a second row forward
Battlecry Early days, but does seem to like shouting at Iain when the Ginger Boy cocks something up - fair enough, really!
Claim To Fame His dad Tom played rugby for Scotland and was the last man to score a winning try for Scotland against England at Twickenham (in 1983!)
