Aaron Smith is a former professional rugby league icon famed for his spells at Castleford Tigers and Bradford Bulls.
He was once branded by Tigers superfan James Crapper as The Ronaldo of Rugby.
In recognition of his career achievements his current employers have vowed to retire the number 13 when he hangs up his baguettes.
Having won Super League VIII, Bradford played against 2003 NRL Premiers, the Penrith Panthers in the 2004 World Club Challenge. Smith played at hooker in the Bulls' 22-4 victory.
He has previously played for the Leigh Centurions.
In May 2014 Smith announced plans to come out of retirement and is currently considering a sensational return to the game with Championship (rugby league) side North Wales Crusaders.
Away from rugby, being a proud Yorkshireman Smith is a lifelong supporter of Arsenal FC although he was a Manchester United fan as a boy.
