    Amazing goal line kicker - once saw him kick it 60 metres on the full which carried it over all the other team, and with a good few rolls it went 90 metres. We pinned them in their 20 from a goal line kick.

    Michael Reid

    Also played for Canterbury in 1987

    I think he is the same Mick Reid who is a trainer in our NYC squad and was high performance manager for Fiji at the world cup.

    I believe that. He was a Union fullback who loved to kick the hell out of the ball and could get us right down the field. He would have been good at 40/20s if they had them in those days.

    Halfback
    Brother of fellow Knights player Brock Mueller
    Played 15 games with the Knights from 2003 - 2005

    Blake was a second row or lock. He was a tackling machine, but not big enough to make it in the bigtime. He set a record for number of tackles in a game in reserve grade - can't remember the number, but 50+.
