Canterbury gave me the chance to develop my game in a highly competitive and physical league, this gave me a really strong foundation to kick on with my career. I am very fond of my time at the club.

Following an injury setback in New Zealand Mike joined Canterbury RFC to get a season of rugby under his belt before heading home to play in the NPCMike had to retire early due to a hamstring injury and is now back in New Zealand and expecting identical twin girls in June.
