Meet Matt

Matt Smith is a former NBL player who has somehow managed to retire from the sport three times.

He played a single game of Australian Rules Football before being sidelined with a stoke related injury and can now be found running around the local A-grade Basketball Comp coercively explaining to players half his age how good he used to be.  

Linking into the NBL at aged 16 in the subsequent decade's Matt plied his trade across three continents and has gathered experiences and tales from all over the world.  

He is currently involved in junior, local and professional sport and can be found daily in the local council offices trying to make sport a better place. 

With experience in applying, coaching and running a club Matt is able to bring a unique perspective to sport.

The Sideline View isn't a traditional sports show, it isn't 100% focused on the national leagues like The Wallabies, WNRL, NRL, AFL, WAFL, NBL, BBL, The Australian Cricket Team or Super Netball. Instead, it will provide score updates, exclusive interviews and live coverage of all local sports happening in Cairns.

This uniquely local show will engage the local sporting communities by making the content all about them and highlighting our local stars as well as keeping you up to date with the national scores and news.

Join Matt Smith from 12pm Saturday afternoon on 4CA.
