Tassie Truckin': Jayden Wiggins

JAYDEN Wiggins delivers many the ability to make lots of dough in his job as a truckie.

Aged 38, Jayden drives an Isuzu 550 for boss Phil Horn who sub-contracts for the historical Tasmanian Flour Mills.

Big Rigs saw Jayden delivering bags of flour to the Banjo's Bakery in Sorrel on January 10 and he was delighted to have a yarn.

"It is an old truck but really does the job well and I get around Hobart, down to the Huon Valley, to Richmond, Brighton, New Norfolk and some other places from our base at Glenorchy,” he said.

Jayden is a member of the North Melbourne Kangaroos club in the AFL and gets over to the Victorian capital to watch some of their matches.

"I am looking forward to seeing them play some matches in Tasmania as well.”

While he may follow Australian rules, Jayden is also a soccer coach in Hobart and used to play until injury forced a break from the game.
