Seagulls vet Callum Wilson flies again
CALLUM Wilson knows his rugby league career is winding to a close, even though he is only 28.
In fact, it was nearly finished in 2012.
At the end of that season, Wilson decided to take some time away from playing with the Tannum Sands Seagulls to spend more time with his family.
He was lured back into the sport this year by a well-constructed plan implemented by coach Shane Kenwood.
Wilson was then given the captain's job for the year.
Initially, he was happy with seeing an improvement from the last few years, when Tannum Sands were never in the premiership hunt.
Now, anything short of a grand final will be a let down for him.
It would be a big way for the captain to go out after playing for the Seagulls since he was a junior.
First he wants to finish first on the premiership ladder and win the minor premiership.
A big step towards doing so would be a win tonight against Brothers, who lead the Seagulls by a single point.
"The results like this always matter, they are top of the ladder and we want to beat them," he said.
"There is still a long way to go to the semis, but it is still important."
