In the past Samuel has played soccer, footy, netball, golf and tennis although he particularly enjoys volleyball having played indoor state-league for over seven seasons and beach volleyball in the Australian University Games. Now retired from volleyball Samuel enjoys using his experience to treat athletes of all ages and calibre. Samuel is the team osteopath for Northcote City Football club.
